A student from an elite convent school was made to sit in a village primary school that former US president Bill Clinton visited in order to impress him.

The incident took place in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, and the government has taken serious note of this foul play.

According to a report published in a Hindi daily, a class eight student of a convent school was included in a group of students who had to meet Clinton during his visit to a primary school in Jabrauli village on 17<sup>th July.

The student was provided with the school's uniform and hastily given admission without a transfer certificate or mark sheets in order to "impress" Clinton, reported ZeeNews.

According to the report, the principal of the convent school said that the student had applied for special leave on July 17.

Taking serious note of the incident, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said, "We take all your reports seriously. Whatever is there in the media is being taken seriously by us."

Former US president Clinton was in Jabrauli village to meet workers connected with the Clinton Health Access Initiative, which trains healthcare workers to treat diarrhoea, one of the largest killers of children in India.

Clinton appreciated the villagers for their initiative in preventing diarrhoea in their area.

"I am happy that people here are aware about diarrhoea and know about their prevention," he told reporters.
