In a bid to go digital at government schools, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, on Friday, inspected various equipment of companies pertaining to the digital learning that would be set up at schools. This is to improve the quality education by incorporating latest technology in the education system. After inspection of equipment, the CM instructed officials that appropriate measures should be taken to safeguard the equipment that would be installed in schools.
