Meanwhile all Officers, teachers and other staff members were engaged in this campaign through phone call and video conferencing. The parents of the children were informed about online education and the activities being carried out by the education department under ‘ Garh Bethe Siksha’.

The teachers urged the parents to campaign for enrollment of students in government schools.
Mr. Krishan Kumar said that all the school principals and teachers have done a great job in keeping the children engaged in education. Parents were sensitized with the help of social media before launching the campaign. With the consent of parents, phone calls have also been recorded which will be shared through social media to motivate other parents towards government schools. Parents showed great enthusiasm for this unique initiative.
