Bhubaneswar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with at least 17 school students, including nine girls from Odisha on Tuesday at the Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi as part of his ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0’ programme. A total of 2,000 students, parents and teachers from across the country will participate in the programme.
Through this programme, Modi will interact with students, teachers and parents and discuss on the ways to reduce examination related stress.
The students have already reached New Delhi for the purpose.

The participants from abroad include from countries like Russia, Nigeria, Iran, Nepal, Doha, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore.
This programme will be telecast live on Doordarshan (DD) which will be aired live by other TV channels. Arrangements have also been made for live telecast of the programme at all Government and CBSE Schools and Higher Education Institutions/Colleges across the country and abroad.
Last week, the Higher Education Department has issued ‘urgent’ letters to Vice Chancellors of all universities and principals of all degree colleges to make necessary arrangements for the live view of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0’ programme to be held on January 29.
