He said that the thoughts given by Baba Saheb were inspirational and their thoughts could not be kept in bounds. Anyone could simulate him, he added.
The Governor said that today’s youth have to be educated in such a way that instead of job seekers they could become job givers. We could find the answer to this in the Himachal Chapter of DACC. Our education should also move in that direction where youth could become job creators, he added. He said that the National Education Policy was also emphasizing on this. He also stressed the need to create entrepreneurship in the State.
