 5 cr KBC winner Sushil Kumar now MNREGA brand ambassador New Delhi: Bihar boy Sushil Kumar, who hit the
Rs 5 crore Kaun Banega Crorepati jackpot, was on
Monday named by the Centre as the brand
ambassador for its flagship rural job guarantee
scheme MNREGA. Announcing the decision, Rural Development
Minister Jairam Ramesh said Sushil Kumar is a
' '  '"good example' '  '  of young men who worked in
the MNREGA programme and the Government will
make use of him in Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar
Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh to highlight the impact of NREGA on the rural masses. Sushil Kumar, a data operator with MNREGA, is a
' '  '"better person' '  '  to speak about it, the Minister
said while felicitating him at a function here. Calling him ' '  '"a real crorepati' '  ' , Ramesh said young
men like Sushil Kumar should be projected as
they were the people who have come up
through the MNREGA system. ' '  '"There was a young boy in Khammam district in
Andhra Pradesh. Three years ago he cracked the
IIT entrance exam. He is also son of MNREGA
labourers,' '  '  he told reporters. Asked whether he would help Kumar who had
said that his ultimate aim is to clear the Civil
Services examination, the Minister said, ' '  '"I wish
him all the best. He is in touch with my Private
Secretary. We will help him, if he wants to join
the IAS. This is what mobility is all about.' '  '  Ramesh had written to Sushil Kumar
congratulating him on his win. Sushil Kumar, who hails from Motihari in East
Champaran ' '  '    a naxal-affected district of Bihar ' '  '   
said he was fortunate to have been associated
with MNREGA. ' '  '"Whatever responsibility I am given, I will do it
with utmost sincerity,' '  '  he said. He said MNREGA can help stop youths moving
towards Naxalism to a large extent. Related Articles:
