Crore of people directly connect to us using digital platforms," he said."When the lockdown was imposed, we all thought about how will activities of the party go on? how will we serve crores of people? Will the party also undergo a lockdown? But I am happy that party used digital medium to encourage lakhs of workers to serve crores of people," he added.BJP president lauded the decisions taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the fight against COVID 19."When Modi took the decision of lockdown, 'A bold step has been taken at the right time', said WHO about lockdown in India.

Photo: PTI.India ''s finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced last week that India ''s private sector will play a key role in augmenting India ''s space programme, and that the government intends to share the facilities of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) with the private sector. This announcement was part of the Narendra Modi government ''s call for new and bold reforms in an effort to promote its #8216;self reliant India ' mission. It is the fourth segment of the Rs 20 lakh crore Aatma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan special economic stimulus.
Not entirely. While the PM did not give the details, he did specify that this calculation of Rs 20 lakh crore includes what the government has already announced and the steps taken by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). This means the total amount of additional money that is over and above what the government would have spent even in the absence of a Covid crisis will not be Rs 20 lakh crore. It would be substantially less.That s because the PM has included the actions of RBI, India s central bank, as part of the government s fiscal package, even though only the government controls the fiscal policy and not the RBI (which controls the monetary policy). Government expenditure and RBI s actions are neither the same nor can they be added in this manner. Nowhere in the world is this done, clarifies Prof NR Bhanumurthy of NIPFP.
New Delhi (India), Dec 6 (ANI): In a bid to ensure that children in tribal areas are not deprived of quality education, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that his government will put in place an extensive network of more than 400 new 'Eklavya Model residential schools' by 2022 across the country."We are developing an extensive network of 'Eklavya Model residential schools in the country. By 2022, more than 400 such new schools will be opened," said Prime Minister Modi in his address to the Ekal Vidyalaya Sangathan, Gujarat, through video conference."The Central government is working for the education of tribal children with special emphasis on their skill development. The scholarship schemes for the tribal children have been made more transparent and more opportunity is provided to them for their education," he added.The Prime Minister said that small things are being taken care of in these schools, which are meant for tribal students."We are paying attention to every small thing like holidays are granted in these schools on tribal festivals. As a result, the drop out rate has decreased and the tribal children are also happy," he said."These schools are also being developed to provide them with modern sports facilities," said Prime Minister Modi.Stressing on the need for the government and the society to strive collectively to make the schemes a success, Prime Minister Modi said: "In my view, the government efforts alone are not sufficient. The government and society should collectively strive for making such schemes a success."Prime Minister Modi also shared the idea of pairing private and public schools wherein students from the rural background will learn from their urban counterparts and vice versa, thus boosting the idea of 'Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat'. He also congratulated Ekal Vidyalaya Sangathan for spearheading the 'Ekal School Abhiyan' which aims to promote the education among rural and tribal children, and appreciated the Sangathan volunteers for their role in nation building by imparting education and awareness to more than 2.8 million rural and tribal children who reside in the remotest locations across India and Nepal.Congratulating the Sangathan on reaching the figure of 1 lakh schools across India, the Prime Minister said that working with passion, dedication, and commitment turns an impossible goal into an achievable one. He highlighted the fact that the Sangathan has been awarded the Gandhi Peace Prize due to its commitment towards social service and for being an inspirational role model for the whole country.The Prime Minister noted that the Union Government is also working enthusiastically for better education and skill development in India. Schemes like scholarship for scheduled tribes' children, Poshan Abhiyan, Mission Indradhanush, and school holidays on the occasion of tribal festivals, etc., have helped not only in checking the school dropout rates but also promoted the holistic development of children.The Prime Minister remarked that as India completes 75 years of Independence, the success of Ekal Sangathan will help in realising Mahatma Gandhiji''s ideals of Gram Swaraj, social justice of Dr BR Ambedkar, 'Antyodaya' of Deen Dayal Upadhyay and Swami Vivekananda''s dream of a glorious India.Ekal Vidyalaya is a movement involved in the integrated and holistic development of rural and tribal India and Nepal. The main activity undertaken in this movement is to run one teacher schools, known as Ekal Vidyalayas, all over India, in the remotest rural and tribal villages to take the education to every child.

"Getting the award in the year of Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary is personally significant for me.

A clear conversation and education on menstrual hygiene is a must for every adolescent girl. With heavy hormonal activity and puberty, the young girls are often vulnerable and impressionable. As a result, they hesitate to talk openly about the issue and end up using unhygienic methods during their menstrual cycles, making them highly prone to infections and diseases. Apart from the physical harm, they also go through mental strain by thinking themselves to be dirty and undeserving while on period.Understanding the sensitivity of the situation, the state of Bihar has initiated a project the Bihar State Project Education Council and Sarv Siksha Abhiyan, where the schools will have weekly classes on menstruation. The project is a part of Mukhyamantri Kishori Yojana, in which each institute will have a class every Saturday on periods where students will be taught about correct ways to use sanitary napkins, hygiene, reproductive health, etc. These classes, in the first phase of the project, will be conducted only for the female students in the senior secondary classes but in later phases, the project is expected to rope in younger girls and moving on the plan of the Department of Education, Bihar is also to sensitise boys about puberty related issues.
Ahead of Gandhi Jayanti, PM Narendra Modi launched the Swachhata Hi Seva Abhiyan to commemorate the Father of the Nation's 150th birthday.Earlier in the day, PM Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind had visited Delhi s Rajghat to pay their respects to Mahatma Gandhi.
