The PM also tweeted a video where he can be heard saying, “We have been living under the shadow of coronavirus for the last one year and because of that I have to forego the charm of meeting you in person and have to be with you in a new format -- the first virtual edition of 'Pariksha Pe Charcha'.”
He also asserts that this is 'Pariksha Pe Charcha' but is not confined to just a discussion on 'Pariksha' or exams. It was mentioned in the video that the PM will engage children as a friend and also interact with teachers and parents during the virtual event.
Earlier in February, it was announced that this year’s annual interaction of the PM with students, parents and teachers will be held online in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first edition of the Prime Minister's interaction programme with school and college students 'Pariksha Pe Charcha 1.0' was held at the Talkatora Stadium on February 16, 2018.
