CM Yogi along with Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma on Friday laid the foundation stone of Sainik School at Gorakhpur Fertilizer Factory premises. After laying the foundation stone of the school by worshiping the land amidst vedic chanting, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that Sainik School is a great achievement.
Students studying here will have the opportunity to advance in many areas of the country, to serve in higher positions, he added.
The Sainik School here will have state-of-the-art facilities. The Chief Minister said that military schools have their own history. The first Sainik School in the state was established in 1960 by the then Chief Minister Dr Sampurnanand.
Martyr Captain Manoj Pandey, a Param Vir Chakra winner who played an important role in the Kargil conquest, had also received teaching training from this Sainik School. When the BJP government came to UP in 2017, the government renamed the Lucknow Sainik School after the martyred Captain Manoj Pandey.
