[RxPG] Raipur, April 20 - Thousands of primary school teachers in Chhattisgarh will become computer savvy with the government and Intel Corp signing a pact to provide computer training to them.

The state has 31,086 primary schools, including 9,263 located in backward areas dominated by tribal population,

'The government has signed a MoU with Intel to impart free training to primary school teachers,' Sahu said. 'Computer trained teachers will bring a revolution in the state.'
