Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s annual interaction with students ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ will be held online in this year in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The interaction with students from classes 9 to 12 ahead of their exams will be held in March, the minister said. “I feel happy to share that the interaction every student was waiting for is back! Get ready to smile your way through exams with PM @narendramodi in #ParikshaPeCharcha2021,” he said in a tweet.
“In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the interaction will be conducted online,” he said in another tweet. The registration for the programme will begin from Thursday and conclude on March 14. Students who will get to ask questions will be selected through a competition.
The first edition of the prime minister’s interaction programme with school and college students ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 1.0’ was held at Talkatora Stadium on February 16, 2018.
Last year, the event was held at Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi and was attended by students, parents, and teachers from respective schools as well. The Ministry of Education had received 2.63 lakh entries from students to participate in ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’; of which the ministry selected about 1,050 students.
