Awarding degrees to 159 successful students of B R Ambedkar Bihar University at Amrapali Auditorium, Bihar Governor and Chancellor of universities Keshari Nath Tripathi called upon the universities to impart moral education to students and make them realize the import of human values.
Tripathi expressed happiness over maintenance of the glorious past of this university which produced great patriots and scholars like the first president of India, Rajendra Prasad, J B Kriplani and Ramdhari Singh, among others. He said the responsibility to take this university to new heights of academic excellence lies on the new generation of students and teachers.
He eulogized the university for organizing second convocation within a short time.
Goa governor Mridula Sinha, who was awarded honorary D.Lit. by the chancellor at the convocation, appealed to students to take a pledge that they would not send their parents to old-age homes and they would never break the bondage of marriage even under provocations. She also called upon the new generation of society to protect chastity of women and keep their surroundings clean. All this, she felt, is necessary for keeping the families and society intact to make India stronger.
BRABU VC Pandit Palande narrated how he succeeded in conducting 60 examinations during his 18-month stint so far and how he has regularized all examinations with effect from the current month. The university has completed preparations for the visit of a team of National Accreditation and Assessment Council from August 17, he said.
