Students successful in UP board examinations, the results of which were declared on Saturday, found a special mention in the speeches of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra during their rallies in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday.

Addressing a rally in Sitapur district, PM Modi offered best wishes to the successful candidates. Consoling those who “remained behind due to a gap of a few marks”, he exhorted them not to lose heart and start working hard right away.

In Barabanki district to address a rally, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, “At the onset, I want to refer to the two toppers from Barabanki who brought laurels to the district with their hard work.” She was referring to Shivam and Tanuja Vishwakarma who bagged the second and third positions in the high school examinations.

“I remember, when I appeared for board examinations, I had to study hard...had to struggle and often troubled my parents,” she said with a smile.

The Congress general secretary also congratulated the successful students on Twitter: ‘My congratulations to the students who succeeded in UP Board examinations 2019. I offer best wishes for your bright future. Keep trying. Those who try, always scale new heights,” read her tweet.

Earlier in the day, chief minister Yogi Adityanath had also sent out a series of tweets congratulating the successful students. He said that students needed to understand that this was just the first stage and they would come across many such stages in life.
