New Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and the chief minister Arvind Kejriwal proposed the president to attend an interactive session with the students.

The event will took place in the school located in the presidential estate. After the special class with the students, the president addressed nearly 100 teachers.
Mukherjee’s focus has always been on providing quality education and in his address to the nation on the eve of Independence Day, he laid special emphasis on “guru-shishya” (Teacher-Student) relationship. He believes that a teacher is like a potter, who, with his soft and skillful hands, moulds the destiny of the student and the society should recognise and find merit of the teacher.
