Asking students to take pleasure in preparing and seeking knowledge, Prime Minister asked them to be tension free.

“Take proper rest, adequate sleep, physical activity are the three essential requirements during the exams, according to me,” he said.

He advised students to not indulge in cheating the answers saying that lack of confidence leads to shortcuts and cheating.

“Some people spend all their time in finding out ways to cheat. If they cheat what will they teach their children? Students should focus on studies, says PM

In his 28th edition of the Prime Minister’s monthly radio broadcast, PM urged students, parents and teachers to share their thoughts as well as experiences during the exam season.

In a tweet made early Sunday, Prime Minister again called on the students to participate in the radio address. He tweeted, “Tune into MannKiBaat  at 11 AM.

On Saturday, the Election Commission of India (EC) gave a green signal to PM’s Mann ki baat scheduled for Sunday.

The government had approached the Commission seeking clearance for the radio programme as Model Code of Conduct is in force in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur which are going to assembly polls between February 4 and March 8.
