President Droupadi Murmu stated on Sunday that educated women may have a stronger impact on society, provide leadership in a variety of fields, and contribute more to the economy. In her speech at the University of Madras’ 165th convocation, she expressed happiness that more than half of the approximately 1.85 lakh students now enrolled in the varsity and its affiliated colleges are female.
I’m also happy to add that 70% of the 105 students who got gold medals today were female, the speaker continued. In terms of gender equality, “the University of Madras is a shining example.” “We are investing in the progress of our nation,” she continued, by funding the education of females. She emphasised that educated women may have a stronger impact on society, give leadership in a variety of fields, and contribute more to the economy.
In his address to the graduating class, Governor R. N. Ravi exhorted them to “explore the many unprecedented opportunities of entrepreneurship in resurgent India with self-confidence, dream big, and put their heart and soul into fulfilling their dreams.” Stalin stated in his speech that his administration is working diligently to create a special “State Education Policy” in line with Tamil Nadu’s history, industrial-thought process, future objectives, and vision for economic development. The National Education Policy 2020 of the BJP-led Centre is opposed ideologically by the DMK government.
