He urged the students to be on a journey towards truth, knowledge and holistic development. Chouhan informed that the government’s endeavours have brought about development that allowed state-wide access to education institutions in the past. He is looking forward to working on the outcomes of this conference to lead the state towards future development, the chief minister said.

Sarkar asserted the supreme power of knowledge, unity, collective thinking and cultural sharing.

The minister lauded the efforts of CBSE in delivering effectively to all its affiliated schools a variety of programmes to enable students to be in sync with all the latest trends in education.

“Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is being celebrated across the country and what could be a better way to mark the celebration than hosting the 27th CBSE Annual Conference of Sahodaya School Complexes with the theme of celebrating 75 years of independence,” said Sarkar.

Sarkar also inaugurated a digital art gallery, Nav-Kala Vithika, showcasing extraordinary artistic skills of young students of CBSE schools from across the country. He released an e-souvenir titled ‘Amiyotsav – Celebrating 75 years of Independence’ under the theme ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’ consisting of case studies on preservation of heritage of the country.
