Bhopal, Nov 25: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that introduction of Sanskrit language study right from the first standard would be considered.

''Full cooperation will be extended to institutes such as Vidyabharti that impart education to children and familiarise them with tradition,'' he said while inaugurating a three-day Samras Bharti Saraswati Bal Sangam 2007 at the local Jamburi Maidan with the objective of promoting national unity and harmony.

Among those present were Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Sahsarkaryavah Suresh Soni and scientist Vijay Bhatkar.

''Besides supplying textbooks and uniforms to children, the state government has begun an unique scheme to provide scholarships and other educational facilities to labourers' kids,'' Mr Chouhan said.

Active institutes such as Vidyabharti are doing laudable work by running sanskar kendras and ekal vidyalays in backward settlements, forest areas and faraway places, he added.

''I am confident that Madhya Pradesh will make achievements in science and information technology. Primary education should be imparted in the mother tongue,'' said Mr Bhatkar.
