Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Monday interact with a group of students, teachers, and parents about various aspects of the examinations during the third edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha.’ The interaction programme with students is being organised at Talkatora Indoor Stadium in Delhi. A total of 2,000 students and teachers are expected to attend the event. Out of 2,000 1,050 students with whom PM Modi will interact have been selected through an essay competition.

During the interaction, PM Modi will share ‘valuable tips’ with the students to ensure they take the upcoming board and entrance exams in a relaxed manner. The prime minister will also respond to questions of students and give them tips to overcome examination stress.

PM Modi will answer queries of students

The students who will get to ask questions to PM Modi have been short-listed on the basis of essays submitted by them on five subjects - Your Future Depends on Your Aspirations, Gratitude is Great, Our Duties, Examining Exams, Your Take, and Balance is Beneficial. According to officials, the event – which will start around 11.00 am - will also be broadcast live on YouTube.

“A lot of excitement and enthusiasm is being seen among the students, teachers, and parents to not only participate in the unique event but also to receive valuable tips from the prime minister who is keen to ensure that the students take exams in a relaxed atmosphere and do not come under stress, to ensure better results in the long run,” the HRD Ministry said in a statement.

A senior official of the ministry said they received around 2.6 lakh entries from students for the event this year. Almost double of what they received in 2018. Last year, it was around 1.4 lakh entries.

PM Modi’s interaction programme ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020’ was initially scheduled for January 16 but was rescheduled to January 20 on account of Pongal, Makar Sankranti, Lohri, Onam and other festivals across the country.
