With Prime Minister Narendra Modi set to interact with school students on February 16, 2018 with his initiative 'Pariksha Par Charcha', the human resource development (HRD) ministry has said that over 20,000 questions have been recieved within a span of four days.
Students were asked to submit their questions on MyGov platform between February 6, 2018 to February 11, 2018. An HT report quoted an HRD ministry official as saying that more than 20,000 questions have been received from across the country. Questions have come even from states such as Andaman and Nicobar, Jammu and Kashmir, Kerala, Goa and the northeast, said the report.
Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar had earlier said that he had directed the state education ministers to relay the programmes in all schools and colleges.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a directive for all schools ahead of the same to ensure maximum reach of the event.
To help the students in exams, a book by PM Modi was launched recently which offered '25 mantras' to the students as he urged them to treat examinations as "a festival" and "celebrate it". Modi's book called the "Exam Warriors", hit the bookstores last weekend on the verge of final examinations in schools.
