Udupi, Nov 12 (UNI) Union Minister for Labour and Employment Oscar Fernades today said that in view of less access to youth to have collegeate education, the UPA government has given more stress to see that every child would have primary and secondary education in the country.

"The situation of treating every youth of India as brand Indian had now changed and people from foreign countries were now looking at India to pursue their higher studies here due to the high international standards maintained by our professional institutions like IITs, IIMs, Business Management schools and public sector undertakings which were now being considered as modern temples of India," he added.
