Direction (Q. 1 - 10): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
The Prime Minister is keen to implement the Right to Education Act and the HRD ministry has been provided with adequate budgetary allocation to meet the demand. The Centre has already made adequate funds available for this purpose. The Union minister for HRD Kapil Sibal said the Centre had allocated Rs 2.31 lakh crore for the implementation of the Right to Education Act. On the basis of this allocation, Rs 45,000 crore will be available for the education sector alone for the next five years. Sibal said that during the implementation of the Right to Education Act, the Centre will give proper assistance to states and the share of the Centre in such educational programmes will be above 55 per cent. Sibal said several states including Uttar Pradesh were demanding 100 per cent assistance from the Centre and insisted .t states should spend their share to enhance the quality of education. "If some states ^want the Centre to contribute 100 per cent, such states should declare that they are not concerned about the education of children in their respective states," he said. About the demand of UP chief minister Mayawati asking the Centre for 100 per cent grant to implement the Right to Education Act, Sibal said if the Uttar Pradesh government does not want to contribute its share,. people of the state will give her a befitting reply in 2012 during the Assembly polls. Though the spat between the UP government and Congress-led UPA government continues, Congress is ready to effectively implement the Act under Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
