Nrupathunga University is the first of its kind institution to help them in their endeavour. It is a matter of pride for the students that they figure prominently in Modi’s vision to make India a great nation.

The country earlier did not have the facilities that the present students have.The country lacked an inspiring leader in the past.

The earlier leaders had considered India’s population as a burden.But Modi sees them as an asset and has pledged to mould them as the soldiers to make India a powerhouse in economy and education.

The New Education Policy has been introduced with this vision.It has instilled a new sense of confidence to usher in glorious future for Karnataka, Bommai said.

Employment Policy

State government has formulated new programmes for the welfare of youth. Greater emphasis is being given for self employment, campus interviews and skills development. A new Employment Policy is being drafted. Our government is committed to provide good education, employment and empowerment for the youth, Bommai said.

Modi is a great statesman

A politician sets his eyes on the next elections, but a statesman sets his eyes on the next generation.
