Shashi, who was the student at Rajkiya Sarvodya Kanya Vidyalaya in GTB Nagar, has got an admission to Lady Hardinge Medical College here.

Expressing happiness over success of the scheme, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said it is giving wings to the dreams of the poor children.

“If we give good education to our children, poverty in the country will be removed in one generation. I am so happy that due to this scheme poor children are now also becoming doctors and engineers. I am happy it’s giving wings to the dreams of the poor children,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.

Shashi is the eldest of three siblings. Her father works as a labourer and mother a housewife. She had earlier appeared in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in 2017, but was not successful.

This year she learnt about the Delhi government’s free coaching scheme for Dalit students — Jai Bhim Mukhyamantri Pratibha Vikas Yojana — under which she got four months coaching at a private institute, said a government statement.
