On the occasion, Governor distributed prizes to the students who won several competition during the programme. Governor Patel said that we have to control the fear within us. Girls should enter the college campus fearlessly. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given us the slogan of Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao. It is our responsibility to come forward to protect our daughters. The Governor said that it is important to get educated but acquiring award is even more important. One should view education according to one’s own point of view and we should move ahead according to one’s skills.

Governor Patel said that we should participate in the welfare works for the poor and exploited section. Centre introduced life insurance scheme of Rs 12 for the poor. If we save Rs 12 and get a poor person’s life insured, he will later get Rs 2 lakhs benefit from it.
