Indianness is our legacy and strengthening it is our duty, says President at JNU Convocation

(@rashtrapatibhvn)
President Ram Nath Kovind has said that premier universities like Jawaharlal Nehru University should be at the forefront to develop specific hand holding mechanisms and promote innovation among student communities. Addressing the 4th Annual Convocation of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) through a Video Message, Mr Kovind said students coming from all parts of India and from all strata of society study in JNU in an atmosphere of equal opportunity for excellence. 

The President said, JNU reflects all shades of Indian culture and the names of buildings, hostels, roads and facilities on the campus are drawn from the Indian heritage. It represents a cultural and geographical picture of India at its best. Mr Kovind said, this Indianness is JNU’s legacy and it should be strengthened.

Referring to the glorious past of teaching and research in ancient India, the President said that in dealing with today’s challenges, we can draw inspiration from universities in Takshashila, Nalanda, Vikramshila and Vallabhi which had set high standards of teaching and research. He said, scholars and students from all across the world came to those centres to attain specialised knowledge.

Speaking on the occasion, Education Minister Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishnak said the role of a university is very important in the implementation of New Education Policy .
