GOVERNOR Anandiben Patel asked students of National Service Scheme to live with rural families during camp in villages. Two-three children can live with one family; this will help children to have proper information about status of the families and their difficulties. The Governor said that good things learnt in the NSS camp should be adopted in the life as well. The Governor stated this during a meeting with NSS volunteers and best award recipients who returned after participating in the Republic Day Parade 2018 from New Delhi, at Raj Bhavan on Thursday.

Patel said that the motto of National Service Scheme is to make youth responsible citizens. Through NSS, students can contribute for nation building and community work for awareness. They can develop their personality. The Governor sought children’s experience during the camp. She asked students that they should take resolution that they won’t allow meaningless expenditure in marriages and neither take nor give dowry and motivated girl students to continue study who dropped out after class VIII. Patel said that they should choose one school in their city or village and carry out plantation and contribute in service of malnourished children and pregnant women. She said that they should help parents in works with service for the country and serve elderly people.

Children introduced themselves with the Governor and shared camp experiences. The Governor presented memento to children. National Award winner of NSS, volunteer Ajay Narayan Patel and Upasana Mishra informed the Governor about their awards. In the programme, State NSS Officer Dr R K Vijay informed about NSS activities.
