The event was organised by departments of school education and tribal affairs. Speaking about the poor education system the state has seen in the past, Chouhan sharing his experience said that when he was a Member of Parliament, while visiting one of the schools he had asked a student to tell the place from where river Ganga originates. “Vindhyanchal”, answered the student and when Chouhan turned to teacher asking what was he teaching in class, the latter to the MP’s shock said that in Rs 500 (what he was drawing as salary), “Ganga” will originate from “Vindhyanchal” only.
