Prime Minister Narendra Modi's annual interaction with students Pariksha Pe Charcha will be held online 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 Prime Minister took to Twitter to say that Pariksha Pe Charcha 2021 will also include parents and teachers.
On popular demand, ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2021’ will also include parents and teachers. It’ll be a fun filled discussion on an otherwise serious subject. I call upon my student friends, their amazing parents and hardworking teachers to take part in #PPC2021 in large numbers.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 18, 2021
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said the registration process of the fourth edition of the interaction has started. "Questions related to dealing with examination stress from school students of classes 9 to 12 will be invited through the MyGov platform and selected questions will feature in the program," he said.
The registration for the program began on Thursday and it will 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 program with the school and college students Pariksha Pe Charcha 1.0 was held at the Talkatora Stadium on February 16, 2018.
"There are different topics assigned for students, parents, and teachers in the contest. The applicants can also pose their questions on this platform. The selected participants will be participating in the program online from their respective state and UT headquarters and will be presented with a special Pariksha Pe Charcha kit," Nishank said. Nishank also expressed his happiness at the online interaction on Twitter.
