Setting an example for other people, Madhya Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Surendra Singh Gaharwar declared to donate his salary in providing higher education to talented students from downtrodden families by making a trust.

''I promised to donate my salary and other perks in the education of talented students from poor background during electioneering in my constituency last November,'' this district's Chitrakut MLA Mr Singh told UNI today.

He mentioned that Scheduled Caste (SC) Scheduled Tribe (ST) people comprises major portion of his constituency's population and their children despite being intelligent were unable to continue studies following financial problems.

''My five months salary from January 2009 has been deposited in the treasury and this procedure will continue in future,'' assured the MLA, adding that more than Rs 4 lakh would deposited in the treasury in a year and later would be distributed among the deserving students.

Mr Gaharwar said that amount would be given to ST and SC students who secured about 60 and 75 per cent marks in single installment.

''General Category's talented but poor students will also be provided aid if they secure about 80 per cent marks,'' he added.
