Vice President’s Addresses 28th Convocation of Gandhigram Rural University at Dindigul

INVC,, Dindigul,, Tamil Nadu,, The Vice President of India, Shri M. Hamid Ansari has said that the Gandhigram Rural University represents the best example of Nai Talim’s ‘work-school’. Over the decades, it has served the needs of the villagers in its neighbourhood and has addressed their concerns. Addressing at the 28th Convocation of Rural University at Dindigul, Tamil Nadu he has said that the University and its students have discharged their social duties with dedication. The Vice President has said that the agriculture sector is not immune from the knowledge-centric economy of today. We live in a world where even manual labour is best optimized through knowledge-based processes. Gandhian approaches towards rural development and the agriculture sector would also need to be integrated into our knowledge economy for realizing their objectives. I am glad that Gandhigram Rural University has taken the initiative in transforming itself into a rural knowledge hub to empower farmers and rural citizens to make optimum use of new rural and agricultural technologies. The key to alleviating rural poverty is to ensure access to information and enable seamless communication on a wide range of themes including businesses, farming practices, government policies, health and education issues and the rights and obligations of citizens.
