"Instead special two-hour programme should be held to teach students about them", Adityanath was quoted as saying by NDTV.

In a significant decision, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that schools would not be closed on the birth and death anniversaries of great personalities. Schools are closed on the birth anniversaries of former Prime Ministers Chandra Shekhar, Chaudhary Charan Singh, late Karpoori Thakur, Maharana Pratap etc. He said that sometimes children are also not aware the reason of holiday and the objective of holiday get defy.

"I am going to make an announcement that may not sound pleasant to many, but the tradition to declare holidays on jayantis of great leaders should end now", declared Adityanath on the occasion of the 126th jayanti of Baba Saheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar.

The CM said that children must be given a chance to take inspiration from the great leaders. Adityanath cited the example of Ambedkar, and said his struggle should inspire future generations.

The chief minister chose Ambedkar Jayanti as the occasion to sign the ambitious 24×7 Power For All scheme of the Centre, as he said it was a tribute to Ambedkar, who stood for equality for all, irrespective of caste. "This leaves the teachers with about 130-140 working days, which is not enough for students to learn", he said.

A proposal for the same is being prepared, the MoS said, adding that besides extending monetary assistance of Rs 20,000 to each girl, the government will bear other expenses for the mass wedding.
