Raipur : Chief Minister Shri Vishnu Deo Sai visited his alma mater in Bagiya village, where he completed his fifth-grade education years ago, for the State-Level Shala Praveshotsav. Shri Sai shared his school days memories when students used to bring cow dung from home, which was used to coat the school floors. He shared the community effort in maintaining the school at that time. He recalled how villagers collectively used to repair the roof. He highlighted the stark differences between then and now, such as the lack of proper flooring and concrete roads during his time. At that time, students had to travel to Seramongra for fifth-grade board exams due to the absence of a local exam centre.

During the event, he invited Padma Shri awardee Shri Jageshwar Yadav from Jashpur district to the stage and praised his dedicated service to the most backward tribal communities, including the Pahari Korwa and Birhor tribes.
