The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) will launch the 'Atal Sarv Shiksha Abhiyaan' on December 25, with its activists distributing copies, pencils, books and bags among under-privileged children in slums and inform them about the importance of education.
Teachers and parents who motivate their children to study would also be honoured on the occasion.
BJYM president Anurag Thakur said that the society will not develop unless education is imparted to all. Praising Vajpayee's farsightedness, he said his initiative of world's biggest literacy programme - 'Sarv Shiksha Abhiyaan' - emphasised on the need for compulsory primary education.
"It is sad to note that the world's largest democracy still has maximum illiterate population. According to the 2011 Census, the literacy rate in India is just 74.04 percent, which is way behind the average 84 percent of the entire world," he said.
The BJP youth leader said that it is important to convey the importance of education to young children in one's life. “The Yuva Morcha activists will ensure spreading the message of education among the masses,” he said.
