The Chief Minister extends support to the families of the deceased.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stated on Friday that in order to transform the country into a ‘developed India’ by 2047, we must connect our institutions with industry. He stressed the need to establish goals for the next 25 years.
Addressing the 5th convocation ceremony of a private university in Greater Noida, the Chief Minister said: “When the country’s population of 142 crore moves forward with one voice and resolve, there is no reason why our country cannot become a developed India.”
As part of the event, the Chief Minister planted saplings within the university campus. The vice chancellor of the University presented him with an Angavastram. On this occasion, a BTech student presented a portrait of Shri Ram Darbar to the Chief Minister.
In his address, the Chief Minister extended best wishes to the graduating students and remarked that our university convocations are a transformed version of ancient India’s university and Gurukul convocations. He said that the universities of ancient India were renowned centers for research and development for graduates worldwide.
He mentioned a verse from the Taittiriya Upanishad, “Satyam vada dharmam chara svadhyayananma pramadah,” and emphasized the importance of speaking the truth, practicing righteousness, avoiding laziness in self-study, and staying on the path of truth and righteousness.
The Chief Minister stated that what we commonly refer to as ‘religion’ in everyday life may not actually be true religion; it could be just a part of it. He mentioned that rituals and worship practices cannot be considered as religion; these are personal activities.
“Religion is a broad concept that inspires us to follow the path of duties, ethical values, and virtuous conduct. Whenever the youth of India has followed this path, India has quickly become a major force in the world,” Chief Minister Yogi emphasized.
CM Yogi further discussed the ‘Panch Pran’ of the Prime Minister, stating that every Indian should adopt this resolve, regardless of the field they are working in. He said that this can only happen when we have a vision of ‘Nation First’ in front of everyone. He asserted that prioritizing the country over personal and family interests is crucial for national progress.
