Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday advised the students to not run for jobs after getting degrees and instead play a proactive role in the development of society.
Adityanath said this while addressing the fourth convocation of Madan Mohan Malaviya University of Technology (MMMUT) here. The chief minister asserted that the convocation ceremony is keeping alive the tradition of ‘gurukuls’ that motivates students to speak the truth, follow the right path and indulge in self-study.
Further, underlining that engineering students can play a major role in various fields, UP CM said that students must come forward for the successful implementation of the ‘Har Ghar Nal’ scheme. This government scheme is aimed at supplying potable water to every household by the year 2024.
Talking about the importance of technology in different fields, Adityanath said, “This has also helped in checking corruption at various levels besides helping the government save crores of rupees. Today, people are able to buy wheat at Rs. 2 per kg and rice at Rs. 3 per kg”.
“Around 50 crore people have been linked to Ayushman Bharat Yojana of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while over 2.5 crore citizens have been given houses,” he added.
On the occasion, the chief minster extended his congratulatory greetings to Infosys founder NR Narayan Murthy for being conferred with the DSc honorary degree at the convocation ceremony. He also applauded the students who were conferred with graduation and post-graduation degrees.
The event was also graced by MMMUT Vice Chancellor Srinivas and Principal Secretary (Technical Education) Radha Chauhan.
