Gandhinagar: Tuesday: State government is headed for organizing a never-before program under ‘Vanche Gujarat' campaign where about 50-lakh students across the state will read quality books for an hour on October 30, between 9-10 am. The program aims at infusing good reading habit among the people of Gujarat especially children.

Principal Secretary for Education Shri Hasmukh Adhiya, while giving details of the program said about 50-lakhs students of primary (above class-5), secondary and higher secondary schools and colleges spreading across the state will participate in the program, just prior to their Diwali vacation, creating a history. It is expected that voluntary organizations and people at different places will also come out in groups to read inspirational books, he said.

Books to be chosen for collective reading will not be the text books but other motivational books, teaching higher values. Reading will not be arranged in class rooms but at the places like school compounds and gardens. Teachers and parents will also be called for participation. Inspirational slogans will also be kept at the places of reading. Entire program will be organized with a due care while maintaining the value of the motive behind it, Shri Adhiya informed while making a public appeal to make the program success.
