The governor also called for community-led participatory actions from the young graduates to keep up with the challenges of the changing times and also understand that an individual's prospects are correlated with that of the community. Thus, besides gaining skills and knowledge, it is essential to cultivate social consciousness, he asserted. “The process of learning in life does not end, but from today is the beginning of new education and achieving new goals,” said Dattatraya.
Rajeev Gupta, Secretary, PSBTE & IT said that it is not merely convocation but a new beginning for another challenging life. This is the day of accomplishment for students, parents as well as teachers. More than the degrees, I am sure, the knowledge and the values you imbibed here, will guide you wherever destiny will take you, he said.
Mohammad Haroun Malik, Special Secretary, Tribal Affairs Department said that students of today are the founders of tomorrow’s nation. We need to bring down the strong boundaries that we have put on the students to help them grow in their desired field in an innovative manner, he said.
Dr.Gurinder Pal Singh, Registrar, MRSPTU said that I must mention that convocations are historical moments in the life of the students and we should always stay connected to our roots and respect our mother land and mother tongue. “The new education policy is employment-oriented. Therefore, all the students should take a pledge to become job creators after completing their education, only then the country will progress,” he said while addressing the students.
Dr.AnshuKataria while congratulating the students said that it’s a proud moment for Aryans to add these young talents for the progress of the Society.
