Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with the school students, teachers, and parents in the fourth edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha 2021 on April 7 at 7 pm. The date and time were announced today by PM Modi on his official Twitter handle. This year, the Pariksha Pe Charcha event will be held online due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
"A new format, several interesting questions on a wide range of subjects, and a memorable discussion with our brave #ExamWarriors, parents, and teachers. Watch ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ at 7 PM on 7th April... #PPC2021," PM Narendra Modi tweeted on Monday.
He also shared a video on his Twitter handle in which he has shared a message for the students. "We have been living in the Coronavirus pandemic for the last one year. Hence, we have to organize the PPC event virtually," he said.
While sharing some tips with the students, PM Modi said in the video, "When we see the exam as the end of our dreams but it is an opportunity to construct your life. I am not giving you this advice as a PM but as a friend. When students worry about what my friends and my parents will say about my results, they create pressure on their minds. Free time is not actually, it is a treasure. Read good books, stories, poetries and watch good movies. These will give you good experiences. It is 'Pariksha Pe Charcha' but it is not just a discussion about exams."
