BHADOI: Highlighting the importance of education, Rajya Sabha member and veteran Bollywood actress Jaya Bachchan on Saturday said when a woman becomes literate, the entire family benefits.
“You can even become Hillary Clinton of the US, but for that education is necessary,” she told girl students. Bachchan, who was here to inaugurate classrooms at Gyan Devi Girls Inter College, said if a woman becomes literate, then the entire family becomes literate.
Asking students not to click her pictures, she said photos should not be taken without the permission of the concerned person. She expressed surprise that students were using mobile phones inside the school and said that taking selfies from cell phones has become a fashion these days. She visited Jeevan Deep Leprosy Center at Pipris and took stock of government facilities being provided to patients. She also inaugurated a community center constructed from her local area development fund. Bachchan has adopted Bhadohi for development. — PTI
