Addressing the gathering, the minister asked students to do something more apart from excelling in studies. "The students need to develop self-confidence and should take the nation to greater heights," the minister said
"The IITs have an important role to play in the realisation of this goal," Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' said. He said culture should be joined with education, so that the individual has an enduring and firm foundation for growth.
New Delhi, Feb 12 (ANI): Speaking about an event at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said that whatever happened at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was inappropriate. He said strict action will be taken against the anti-national elements. He added that if anyone raises anti-India slogans and tries to raise question on nation's unity and integrity, they would not be spared. Union Minister for Human Resource and Development (HRD) Smriti Irani also echoed similar sentiments, saying that academic institutions have the responsibility of following principles and thereby it should be kept in mind that institutions are respected.
