With the objective of ensuring cent per cent enrolment in primary and upper primary schools in Uttar Pradesh, chief minister Yogi Adityanath  on Monday launched the “School Chalo Abhiyan” from Jaichandpur Katghara upper primary school in Shravasti district. 

Shravasti district has the lowest literacy rate in Uttar Pradesh, followed by other districts such as Bahraich, Balrampur, Badaun and Rampur. 

This drive to improve primary education in the state will last until April 30. It will be run especially in low literacy districts. A target has been set to connect two crore children with the drive.Emphasising the importance of education, Adityanath said, “For a country to progress, it is necessary that education is imparted, especially to the younger generation. It is our responsibility towards the country that we should educate the children and for that, students should be sent to school.” 

For the next one month, the workers will knock from door to door and ask if there is any child who has been deprived of going to school, added the CM.
