Schools in UP to Remain Open on Death and Birth Anniversaries of Great Men
It may not sound good to the children, teachers and staff of different schools, but now they will not get as many holidays as they were getting in the last few years.
Lucknow: It may not sound good to the children, teachers and staff of different schools, but now they will not get as many holidays as they were getting in the last few years.
Speaking at a function on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti on Friday, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced that tradition of holidays in schools on the occasion on death and birth anniversaries of great men will now be scrapped. Rather, students will be taught about these great men during a special session of two to three hours on that day.
Addressing a function to mark the 126th birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar, UP CM Yogi Adityanath said, "It is not a great idea to close the schools on the occasion of birth or death anniversaries of great people. In fact, many times, children do not even know why the school has been closed."
CM Yogi Adityanath said that he will make better arrangements for the education of Dalit children. Every child will be given two sets of uniforms, bag, books and shoe. All this will be handed over to the children in the first week of the session and no discrimination shall be made whatsoever.
The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh expressed gratitude to PM Modi over his efforts for public welfare and for supporting digital India by launching Bhim app. He also lauded the efforts of PM Modi for building Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial in Delhi and Maharashtra.
He further said that there will be no discrimination in any form in Uttar Pradesh. No one will be troubled because of his caste and religion. The responsibility of security of 22 million people is the top priority of the UP Government. No matter how powerful anyone is, he is not above the law.
