Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday held the second townhall Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0 at Talkatora Stadium of New Delhi where around 2,000 students, parents and teachers interacted with him about the exam related issues and problems of students ahead and after board exams.

While addressing the townhall he said, “Students are the future of India. I can see a mini-India.”

Talking about the technology he also said that technology should lead to expansion of the mind and be seen as a means to innovate, but, he also asked students not to forget the playing field.
