Governor advises students to be socially responsible

JULLANG, Oct 27: Governor BD Mishra on Saturday inaugurated a ‘cultural-cum-food fest’ organised by Don Bosco College (DBC) here.
Addressing the students, the governor advised them to “develop scientific temper, humanism, and spirit for inquiry and reform, with a view to take the state and the nation forward.”
He also advised them to be socially responsible and ensure that every child in the age group of 6 to 14 years goes to school. He exhorted them, as well as the teachers, to take part in cleanliness drives.
Commending the college’s ‘preventive system’ of education, which requires personal and dedicated involvement of the teachers in moulding the students into good persons and useful citizens of the country, Mishra appreciated the college “for encouraging good academic results of the female students of the college.”
DBC director Fr CC Jose and the college’s principal, Fr Jose George, also spoke.
The students presented a cultural programme depicting the traditional lores of various tribes of Arunachal Pradesh.
Later, the governor, accompanied by his wife Neelam Misra and RGU Vice Chancellor Prof Saket Kushwaha, visited the tribal houses displaying different types of cuisines of Arunachal Pradesh. (Raj Bhavan)
