Mr.Prabhakar Deshmukh who is currently the Secretary of Water Conservation, E.G.S. since September, 2014 had once visited one of the Zilla Parishad schools. The main aim was to check out the functionalities and other things that happen in such schools. The then Pune Divisional Commissioner, Mr. Prabhakar Deshmukh along with district collector Vikas Deshmukh, played a new role on this day – that of teachers!
Nearly 3,800 class I and class II revenue officers visited around 3,500 schools in the division on the first day of the initiative. As a part of this initiative, revenue officials will teach school students on the second Thursday of every month. The programme was implemented in all five districts in the division – Pune, Satara, Sangli, Solapur and Kolhapur, said Mr. Prabhakar Deshmukh. The officials also tasted midday meals with the students and spent the entire day at the schools to understand their functioning.
