Prime Minister Narendra Modi is often touted to be one of the coolest PM’s India has ever had. He is always updated about the latest technology and trends on the social media. On Tuesday, he had a live interaction session Pariksha Pe Charcha with hundreds of parents whose kids are going to appear in Board Examinations this year. During the session in Delhi, which took place on Tuesday, a parent was concerned about her kid’s PUBG addiction and approaching board examinations. She seemed to have no clue about what to do with her son. To this question, PM Modi chuckled a little and asked, “Ye PUBG wala hai kya?”

This left the crowd in splits. People started applauding the Prime Minister for being aware of the latest trend that has gripped the younger generation. However, soon he kept the jokes aside. He said that online gaming is a kind of blessing. All these new games including PUBG or Fortnite have kept the teenagers hooked to new technologies.
Prime Minister also said that parents should let explore new ways in which they can encourage their kids to get the most out of the latest technology rather than getting addicted to it. Parents should educate their kids about other apps though which they can learn something useful.
PUBG has become an addiction for the younger generation these days. It has become a highly debatable topic in India as the people are divided over it. Some believe that we should have a limit to the smartphone usage while others believe that such online games shouldn’t exist.
