Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ to be held on Wednesday | India News


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Monday that his annual interaction with “Pariksha Pe Charcha” students will take place on April 7 in a new virtual format.
“A new format, several interesting questions on a wide range of topics, and a memorable discussion with our brave #ExamWarriors, parents and teachers. Watch ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ at 7pm on April 7,” the prime minister tweeted.
Along with his tweet, he also tagged a video about the event detailing the highlights of this year’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’.
“We have been living under the shadow of the coronavirus for the last year and that is why I have to give up the charm of meeting you in person and having to be with you in a new format: the first virtual edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha'”, Says Modi in the video.
He also urges students to view exams as an opportunity rather than the end of life’s dreams.
A voiceover in the video says that the prime minister will speak to the children as a friend and will also interact with teachers and parents during the virtual event.
Modi also talks about the pressure of what people and parents will say, which sometimes becomes a burden.
In the video, the prime minister also says that this is ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ but it is not limited to a simple discussion about ‘Pariksha’ or exams.
In February, it was announced that Prime Minister Modi’s annual interaction with students will take place online this year in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The first edition of the Prime Minister’s interaction program with school and university students “Pariksha Pe Charcha 1.0” was held at the Talkatora Stadium on February 16, 2018.
