Bathinda, April 1: Central University of Punjab, Bathinda (CUPB) organized a special screening of the fifth edition of the “Pariksha Pe Charcha 2022” (PPC2022) programme on Friday with the aim to release exam stress among students. The LIVE screening of this programme was organized at four different venues of the university (Seminar Hall, Computer Centre, Conference Room, and IQAC Meeting Room) to exhibit the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s interaction with students. More than 400 students, research scholars, faculty and staff members along with Vice Chancellor Prof. Raghavendra P. Tiwari attended this programme.
At the outset, Union Education Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan expressed his gratitude towards the Hon’ble PM and encouraged the students to appear for the exam in a fearless mood. During the programme, the Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji interacted with students, teachers, and parents from every nook and corner of the country. While answering questions, Shri Modi mentioned that students should not get stressed during exam days, rather they should utilize their experience of previous examinations to tackle the upcoming examinations. He encouraged youngsters to consider technology as an opportunity and not as a challenge. He advised students to adopt a disciplined life routine, follow their dreams without imitating others, and develop the capability to appreciate the qualities of others and learn from them. He emphasized the importance of time management and physical fitness to stay ahead in this competitive world, and encouraged them to be ready to take calculated risks to grow further in life. The Hon’ble PM urged parents to provide equal opportunities to both male and female children and to avoid pressuring their children to choose a particular profession. Shri Modi also motivated youngsters to work for environmental conservation by joining the “P3 movement” (Pro Planet People Movement) and adopting a lifestyle for the environment—LIFE.
After attending the live screening of PPC2022, Prof. Raghavendra P. Tiwari, the Vice Chancellor, thanked the Hon’ble Prime Minister and the Hon’ble Education Minister for providing an opportunity for students of our country to release their exam stress.
