Gujarat: When a student from his alma mater, a primary school in Mehsana district, asked if he too could aspire to become Chief Minister, Modi said "in life don`t aspire to become something but instead think of doing something. It is then that you will get satisfaction."

"Many people have a belief that children of government schools cannot attain much in life but actually it is not so. I am also a product of a government school," he said.
Earlier, during his address, Modi said Gujarat was the only state in the country to provide insurance cover to students right from their primary education to the post graduation level.

Gujarat Governor Kamla Beniwal said "today, education plays a very significant role in a big democratic nation like India because in this country persons from village who virtually don`t have any education become sarpanch, MLAs, CM, and play active role in democracy."

"So, in such a big democracy, where a common person rules, one should have an impressive personality trait for which education is must," she said.

On the occasion, Modi inaugurated a portal www.gujaratquiz.in, which contains a questions bank and answers on various topics related to the state.
