Chief Minister’s call for fast improvement in educational standard for faster growth of Gujarat, focus on basic amenities this year

    Government officials to visit 34,000 primary schools in 8th Gunotsav Abhiyan April 6-7, 2018

    Chief Minister Vijay Rupani here today asked the officials to keep up the Gujarat Government’s annual school enrolment and educational improvement drive before the beginning of the new academic year through the 8th Gunotsav Abhiyan to be held this year from April 6 to 8, 2018.

    The state government officers and employees are scheduled to fan out all over the villages during these two days to evaluate 54-lakh students studying in over 34,000 government primary schools, ashram shalas and grant-in-aid schools during the three days.

    Addressing the officers and employees to fan out all over the state shortly, Mr. Rupani said that most of the students coming to government primary schools belong to poor and labour class families. It is the government’s duty to raise their standard. This year the focus should be on evaluation of physical amenities in the villages like road, drinking water and healthcare facilities as well in consultation with the village elders, in addition to A, B and C grade given to schools.

    The Chief Minister said the educational standard has gone up in the schools due to Gunotsav initiated by the Prime Minister seven years back. He asked the officials to compile, collate and share their experience as follow-up action to ensure all round development of the schools.

    Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasma gave details of the Gunotsav, aimed at educational improvement of nearly 54-lakh children in primary schools in the state.

    Other Ministers, senior IAS, IPS and IFS officers were present at the function.
