Lucknow: In an interaction with top-10 meritorious students of UP Board of Lucknow on Wednesday, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath highlighted the importance of being well-aware along with being well-educated and trained.
While congratulating the toppers on their success, the Chief Minister said, “It is equally important to be well-aware along with being well-educated and trained in your respective subjects. Every student must be aware of the issues of national and international importance as well as about central and state government measures and schemes to become a responsible citizen of the country.”
He added that the habit of visiting libraries, reading books and newspapers should be adopted by every child to improve their sense of understanding and general knowledge, which will also help them in their future endeavours.
Stressing the need for using technology to impart quality education to the students, Yogi said that digital means should be utilized to connect every child to education. “Every child can receive quality education from a good teacher if technology is used,” he said.
He interacted with all the meritorious students of the state board and also asked them about their respective percentages and subjects in which they scored well.
Yogi also conversed with the principals from various institutions and inquired of the special steps taken by them to ensure that students do well in their examinations and also about the total strength of their students, faculty and particular steps taken towards uplifting the weaker students.
Emphasizing on the importance of both learning and playing, Yogi said, “Everything has its own importance and every activity is essential for the complete development of the child. If playtime is important, so is the time spent in a library.”
Ved Vrat Vajpayee, Principal of one of the institutes, lauded the steps of the Yogi Government taken towards ensuring cheating-free, fair examinations. “This is a result of eradicating the prevalence of cheating, copying that students from comparatively smaller institutions have done well,” he said.
Yogi also encouraged the parents to ensure that such an environment is created at home so that children are motivated to study more and more.
The parents also expressed their gratitude towards the Chief Minister for transforming the state into a safer place for their daughters and for schemes like ‘Beti bachao, beti padhao’
He also urged the children to benefit themselves through Government’s —Abhyudaya scheme — aimed at preparing students to excel in competitive examinations. “Experts from various fields are there to train students according to their experiences. Students must take maximum advantage of such government measures,” he said.
Yogi further asked the Principals and the teachers to actively make the children aware of the various state and central government schemes so that maximum people are benefited.
Whenever there are rules and regulations in life, the person will be healthy. One should practice yogic kriyas regularly, it is essential to keep the body and mind healthy, he said.
The educational institutions should make sure that children are aware of what the government is doing and how their measures can benefit them through presentations on various government schemes. “Lack of knowledge and awareness prevents the government from reaching maximum beneficiaries,” he said.
The CM also asked the principals of all the institutions whether government, government-aided or private to meet at fixed intervals and exchange concepts and make presentations on ways to improve the skills of children by giving examples of toppers.
The CM also presented rewards to the children for their achievements.
