In a proactive move, Yogi Adityanath, chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has cancelled 15 holidays for schools, colleges and government, which were there to commemorate “great people”. The chief minister said, “special programmes will be held to educate school children about the great leaders. Many times, children don’t even know why the school has been closed.” Now that is real cutting edge thinking. Schools currently run only around 120 days as against a minimum of 220 days per year, so now the school year would increase as well as the working hours of the government.
