Chief minister Yogi Adityanath will launch the ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’ across the state from Shravasti, the district with the lowest literacy rate, on April 4.
During a meeting with officials on Thursday, the chief minister issued directions that main focus of the drive should be on the districts with low literacy rate.
“All teachers should go on a door-to-door visit and meet the parents and motivate children to come to school,” said Yogi.
The chief minister said all MLAs as well as officials should adopt one school each for its holistic development.
The CM directed officials to pay special attention towards districts like Shravasti, Bahraich, Balrampur, Badaun and Rampur, where literacy rate was low and run an extensive campaign.
The CM further gave instructions to transform all the schools of Basic Education Council under Operation Kayakalp.
