Message for Students Community on Independence Day
Today’s students are tomorrow’s builders of the nation. Students’ community must
develop their mindset towards the unity and integrity of the nation and
inculcate the moral values within them. This was urged by Mr. Mahbubul Hoque,
Chancellor of University of Science & Technology, Meghalaya, on the occasion of
Independence Day, 2014.
Along with the whole nation, the 68th Independence Day has been celebrated with
great zeal and enthusiasm in the Techno City campus at 9th Mile. The National
Flag, the symbol of our national pride and sovereignty, was hoisted at 8.35 am
by Dr. P.G Rao, Vice Chancellor of USTM. While talking about the significance of
the Day, Dr. Rao expressed his gratitude, on behalf of all, to those great men
and women whose selfless sacrifices made us to live in an independent country
today. Mr. Mahbubul Hoque in his speech emphasized on the fact that India is a
rural based country and the growth of the country would largely depend on the
growth of the rural areas. Dignitaries present in the ceremony expressed their
great concern on the present scenario of the country where the citizens do not
feel independent even in respect of their fundamental rights. The role of
educational institutions is crucial in changing this scenario. They urged the
students Community to equip themselves with high standard of education and
technological skills which are the instrumental for the progress of the nation.
The celebration was attended by all the high officials, students, guardians and
staff of USTM including local inhabitants.
