Students from J&K call on Gov


DEHRADUN, 7 Feb: A group of 20 students from Jammu and Kashmir called on Governor Baby Rani Maurya at the Raj Bhawan, here, on Thursday. They were the students of Government Degree College, Thanamandi, District Rajauri. These students are on a visit to Uttarakhand under Operation Sadbhawana conducted by the Indian Army. Thanamandi village is a hilly region 20 kms from Rajauri and 170 kms from Jammu.
During the meeting, these young students expressed their views on career opportunities, society, politics and other current issues. The Governor affectionately interacted with every student and asked about their career plans. Students expressed interest in joining the civil services, Indian Army, and the education field. Students also talked about their families, villages and social background. They noted that their villages had the same climate as Dehradun.
While addressing the students, the Governor said that the culture of India had unity in diversity. Communal harmony and mutual brotherhood was an integral part of the tradition. Youth could achieve any target in life through hard work and dedication.
She added that young people should work for the progress of their village, society and nation after obtaining a good education. They must not fall prey to allurements. The youth who had deviated from the right path had to be brought back to the mainstream of society. The Army was for people’s security and assistance. Answering a question, she said that educated and honest youth should not hesitate to join politics. They should serve society, connect with the people, help the poor and spread awareness about welfare schemes of the government among the people. The Governor also emphasised on women’s empowerment and education of the girl child. She also presented mementos to all the students.
RK Sudhanshu, Secretary to the Governor, was also present on the occasion.
