Earlier at his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’, the PM had emphasised the need to embrace the strength and talent of the alumni of any college or school.
Modi also requested all to strengthen their bonds with the institutes they studied from and asked the institutes to engage the strength of their alumni in innovations and development to constantly bring better opportunities for the current students.
He also expressed that it is vital that not only the urban schools, colleges and universities but even the rural schools must have a strong alumni network.
