Involving students voluntarily in programmes like cleanliness and adult education will create consciousness among the youngsters, said chief minister Vasundhara Raje who was witnessing the students’ presentation on Skilling and Knowhow Initiatives for Lifelong Leadership Development (SKILLD) programme at her residence here on Thursday.
