ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Raja Parvez Ashraf has announced a sum of Rs 0.5 million for Revtash Kumar, who belongs to a poor family of Rahim Yar Khan and has secured top position in matriculation examination. Revtash Kumar wants to become a doctor but cannot afford to continue his education because his shoemaker father earns Rs 100-150 per day.
In response to an appeal made by his father, Prime Minister Raja Parvez Ashraf has announced a grant of Rs 500,000 for Revtash Kumar, besides bearing all his educational expenses.
