Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020’ programme postponed to 20th Jan
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s interaction programme “Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020” with a cross-section of students and teachers from India and abroad to beat exam stress has been rescheduled to January 20 on account of Pongal, Makar Sankranti, Lohri, Onam and other festivals across the country. The programme was earlier scheduled for January 16, 2020.
The First edition of the Interaction Programme with school and college students was held at Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi on February 16, 2018 and the second edition in January 2019.
On December 5,2019 last year the Prime Minister had announced the competition.
Participants were instructed to write their responses of any one of five themes in a maximum of 1500 characters. The entries for the competition were invited online from December 2 to December 23 last year through www.mygov.in.
The PPC 2020 programme sought not only to reduce the stress of examinations from the young students, but the selected students also get the opportunity to meet the Prime Minister and ask him questions.
