Taking a cue from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to students on Teachers’ Day, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will address school students every month through web telecast. The students’ parents would also be invited for the interactive session.
The secondary education department is making arrangements for the event, which would start from next month. It will be held in both government and private schools statewide.
“So what if it was done by PM Modi? We will do it even better. Ours will be more interactive and even parents will be invited, but it is not compulsory for them to attend…We will make it a monthly event in schools and students can interact with the CM. We will highlight our achievements and actions,” Mehboob Ali, the state’s Minister for Secondary Education, told The Indian Express.
