Yogi who was speaking at the launch event of PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Exam Warrior’. Yogi said that the board examinations have created a fear among the students and he further emphasised on the need for easier exams. This statement by the UP CM comes after more than 10 lakh UP board students skipped their examinations after the UP government cracked a whip against the education mafia that aided in the use of unfair means.

Yogi Aditynath said when he talked about conducting cheating-free exam, 10 lakhs students dropped out. He added that this is the figure until now and further said, “I don’t know what will happen in future.” Further while talking about the fear of exams among the students, Yogi Aditynath said that they are observing the fear of exams that is being created among the students and will not leave it at this. He added that at this point it is important to think on how exams could be further simplified.

The UP Chief Minister then went on to talk about how students should board exams as a part of the daily routine and not as a challenge. While giving an example for the same, CM Yogi talked about the Kanwar yatra from Ghaziabad- Haridwar in which, he claimed, over 4 crore people took part last year. He added that when he took stock of the situation, he was told that several instructions had been given to avoid any untoward incident. He added that the use of mikes, conches and bells as told by the officials had been stopped. When CM Yogi questioned about the reason behind imposing a ban on the yatra, he was told that its route was passing through sensitive areas and it was difficult to man them.

“I said permit people to use mike, conches and bells as per the Supreme Court guidelines. Inspire people so that they themselves welcome the yatra and be part of it,” Yogi said, adding that there were no disturbances during the procession, according to PTI. He concluded the example and said that the government had the government put barriers then it would not have been easy to undertake the pilgrimage.

While connecting the example with the examination situation, Yogi said that parents and teachers should not impose any kind of barriers on students and provide them with a conducive climate to cope with exams.
