The governor of Uttar Pradesh, Anandiben Patel has requested students of her state to read as many books on freedom fighters as possible to know about the struggles they endured for the independence of the country. She made this comment while attending the 87th convocation ceremony of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar University in Agra on Thursday.
She mentioned that students should be aware of the incidents that highlight the sacrifices made by the freedom fighters of our nation in order to attain independence. She picked up incidences like the freedom fighters being sent to the cellular jail in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
Apart from that, she also urged teacher’s to use water and electricity mindfully. She also appreciated girl students and said “It is appreciating that 72 per cent of the medals in the convocation have been bagged by the girls. It is good as women are shining in every field.”
