Chief guest of the inaugural programme, Gopal Hosur, inspector general of police (western range), inaugurated the event by lighting the lamp.
Speaking on the occasion he said that youth have the potential to achieve and can become better human beings of the country. He added that they have to join in the process of creating change in the society as youth are the super power of this country.
“Today’s youth are viewed with cynicism and resentment. After beginning their careers, they start to abuse our country and the resentment results in terrorism, naxalism, communalism, and other anti-social activities”, he said and added that they need to love and understand the constitution of India and realize that the country has a vibrant democracy.
Guest of honour Dr Chandrashekar, managing director, Hutti Gold Mines, said that students need to cultivate discipline, devotion, and other good qualities. “Along with education, students have to participate in cultural activities and gain extra talent which will help them face problems in the future in their professional lives”, he said.
