In yet another display of his fascination for the use of technology, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to connect with every young student and teacher across the nation on the occasion of Teachers’ Day today.
Modi will address about 1,000 students from various schools of Delhi at the Manekshaw Auditorium in New Delhi. In a first of its kind exercise on the national level, this address will be broadcast live on Doordarshan channels, radio as well as on the website of the Ministry of Human Resource Development covering over 18 lakh government and private schools in the country.
The PM will also connect with remote students at National Information Centres in Leh, Port Blair, Silchar (Assam), Imphal, Bhuj (Gujarat), Dantewada (Chhattisgarh) and Thiruvannamalai (Tamil Nadu) through satellite link.
He is also scheduled to interact with the students and take questions from some students through video-conference. Modi’s address goes live from 3 pm and is likely to end by 4.45 pm.
