The  Home Minister, in his address, motivated the students and talked about the significance of hard work in not only student life but also at every stage in human life. He further added that success comes with hard work and the purpose of one’s life should not be confined to one’s personal growth but should also include the welfare of the society at large.

Shri Amit Shah also focussed on the  significant aspects of the National Education Policy-2020 that has been drafted with an objective to provide holistic and multi-disciplinary education of future generation. He stressed on preparing our students for a more meaningful life-style and impart them the sense of responsibility to build cooperative communities.

Shri Amit Shah also encouraged the students to participate in ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ and also promoted the feeling of Nationalism among the children.

The Administrator, Sh Banwari Lal Purohit, emphasised on the relevance and need of New Education Policy and its crucial role in promoting a national consciousness among the students. “The focus of the education should be on character building in addition to skill development”, he further added.

To address the challenges of malnutrition and anemia in pregnant women, lactating mothers, new-borns and to promote nutrition awareness and good eating habits for sustainable health & wellness, the Shri Amit Shah also launched the ‘POSHAK LADDU’ scheme and distributed some ladoos to the beneficiaries.

The ‘POSHAK LADDU’ is incorporated by the Chandigarh Administration as an additional component under the Supplementary Nutrition Programme for approximately 9400 Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers registered across 450 Anganwadi Centre in Chandigarh. The Anganwadi workers will administer the Laddu to the beneficiary themselves to ensure that the Laddu is consumed by the beneficiary herself.
