Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath on Sunday, it announced the free statewide training installation program to help students prepare for various competitive exams. Called ‘Abhyudaya’, the free training center will begin next Basant Panchmi, the day of worship for the goddess of learning, Saraswati. He was addressing the 71st Uttar Pradesh Sthapna Divas on Sunday.
“From the day of Basant Panchami, ‘Abhyudaya’, the free training facility for students in the state who appear in various competitive exams will begin,” he said.
The educational infrastructure of several universities and colleges would be used to provide this facility to students, noted the chief minister. A panel will be formed to oversee the program.
“In the first phase, it will be in the 18 divisional headquarters in the state, where coaching will be given physically and virtually. The authorities will also dedicate their time and specialists will also be placed there, “said Adityanath.
“Classes will be taught both physically and virtually and guidance will be given for various exams, be they NEET, IITJEE, NDA, CDS or UPSC. The training centers will give young people a new platform and motivate them to climb to new heights, “he said.
With the announcement of the free coaching program, the chief minister fulfilled his promise that no student in Uttar Pradesh will have to leave the state to study in other states. Adityanath had made the promise while struggling with the challenge of bringing more than 30,000 students from Kota, Rajasthan, back to the state, where they were being trained for various competitive exams during the pandemic outbreak COVID-19.
He also announced the start of ‘UP Gaurav Samman’, in which three to five citizens who bring laurels to the state will be awarded each year.
“We saw that this year, the social welfare department identified more than 1.43 lakh young people who stood out in various areas and received scholarships. Starting this year, we will be identifying three to five people who have given a new identity to the state in the country as well as the world. We will be honoring them with UP Gaurav Samman, “he said.
