Prez opens engg college campus

President Ram Nath Kovind, who is in Karnataka to attend various functions,  inaugurated the new campus of Amruta Institute of Engineering and Management Sciences at Bidadi, Ramanagaram.

He also inaugurated the 111th year celebrations of the Basaveshwar Veerashaiva Vidyavardhaka Sangha.

"Students here will benefit from state-of-the-art infrastructure and from tie-ups with the local industry. Such a student-industry connect is a must to make education and learning practical and solution-oriented. In particular, I hope it encourages students here to become not just job seekers but also job creators," he said.

Kovind recounted the history of BVV Sangha, formed in 1906 by Shri Gurubasava Swami of Bilur.

"I am told that the Sangha today runs over 150 educational institutions in Karnataka and Maharashtra. These range from primary and pre-primary schools to engineering and medical colleges. I understand that over 50,000 students study in these institutions, and that half of them are women," he said.

He encouraged students contribute to the well-being of the underprivileged.
