During his visit, he engaged in conversations with students, parents, and teachers, as per an official government statement. The release mentioned that the chief minister distributed kits to the newly enrolled students and honored two girls from the school for their outstanding academic accomplishments.
The drive is anticipated to grant admission to approximately 12.7 lakh students in kindergartens and schools throughout the state. Out of this number, around 2.3 lakh students will be enrolled in Class 1, while 9.77 lakh children below the age of six will be admitted to government-run kindergartens.
During the interaction, students at the primary school expressed their desire for a secondary school to be established in the village, so they would not have to seek education elsewhere after completing Class 8.
