Historical Junagadh City News Samachar Gujarat India

Narendra Modi's message to reach 1 crore students.

This Teacher's Day, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will reach out to one crore students across Gujarat.

That is a whopping 50 lakh more than last year. How? The state education department has added 10,000 television screens in schools in every district to telecast CM's message direct to students.

The state has added over 2,500 ku band sets in primary schools and 3,500 in high schools. In addition, about 4,000 sets have been installed in gram panchayat’s and colleges. Schools and colleges have been asked to make arrangements for Modi's telecast.

The state plans to install 38,000 LCD television screens in government-run schools over the next few years. Sources said the state government has already made allocation of Rs 250 crore towards the project in the budget presented this year.

The idea was put on fast track after Modi was unable to reach out to everyone through video-conferencing because of lack of screens in schools last year.

"It was at this function last year when Modi had triggered a debate on open book exams. We are expecting him to rake up another issue this time," said a senior official in the education department.

Officials said the CM is expecting questions from students on grading system, optional exams and burden-free education this time around. Modi's message will not be telecast in schools and colleges in districts - Junagadh, Rajkot, Banaskantha, Patan, Gandhinagar, Surendranagar and Porbandar - whereby-polls are scheduled next week.
