New Delhi: The President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, addressed the first convocation of the Central University of Jharkhand, Ranchi. Speaking on the occasion, the President said that understanding the importance of social service is necessary not only for nation-building but also for self-determination and everyone should be prepared to repay the debt of society.
The President said that the entire society contributes to the establishment and operation of a university and therefore, universities should also fulfil their responsibilities towards society. He said that students can spend some time in nearby villages and help villagers solve their problems and try to improve their quality of life. They can make aware villagers about various welfare initiatives of the government, he added.
The President was happy to note that the Central University has taken the initiative to adopt five nearby villages and has also taken the responsibility of teaching rural children. He stated that many such programs can be run for the people who are relatively left behind in society.
