In his last Mann Ki Baat before the General Elections 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wishes students luck for appearing for their board exams. For the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) students have already begun. Addressing the students, PM said, “Thousands of students are appearing for board exams 2019. My exam warriors, good luck!”

PM also wished parents, guardians and teachers. Referring to his recently concluded Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0, Modi said, “Recently I got the opportunity to talk to thousands of students, teachers and parents with the help of technology through Pariksha Pe Charcha. We discussed a lot of issues related to the education sector.”

PM also advised students to watch the show available on video sharing website Youtube.

During Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0, PM gave suggestions to parents and teachers related to board exams and how to deal with stress during boards. PM also talked about depression among students.

“Timely intervention is necessary in cases of depression. Do not ignore early symptoms. We can fight back,” said he. “If smallest of symptoms of depressions are found, take your child to expert. Do not shy away from counselling. It is wrong to think about ‘what will people think, what if this gets leaked?’ Experts can help a child address their issues better,” PM told the parents

Among the most popular dialogues from the session was, ‘yeh PUBG wala hai kya?’ to a concerned mother on her son’s gaming addiction.
