New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with students, teachers, and parents worldwide in the 5th edition of the ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ programme on Friday (April 1) at Talkatora Stadium in the national capital.
It is a much-awaited annual event in which the Prime Minister responds to questions related to examination stress by students in his uniquely engaging style in a live programme.
During this participatory outreach programme, PM Modi will interact with the students who will appear in the board examinations.
Students, teachers and parents who will get to ask questions to the Prime Minister have been short-listed on the basis of an online creative writing competition on a bouquet of themes, official sources said.
Over 15 lakh students, teachers, and parents have registered for the event. For the first time, selected students will attend the event at Raj Bhavans of all states and Union Territories.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fourth edition of the programme was held online in April last year.
‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ is an interactive programme wherein students, parents and teachers from India and overseas interact with the Prime Minister. They discuss and overcome the stress emerging out of examinations and try to learn tricks to celebrate life as a festival.
School students of Classes 9 to 12, teachers and parents are selected through an online competition.
Due to COVID restrictions, only 1000 students of Delhi NCR, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana have been invited to attend the programme this year.
