Bhopal: Former union HRD minister Murli Manohar Joshi feels difficulties students face in getting into the USA for studies or research work have increased after Donald Trump becoming the president but if a student gets a chance he should go there for a research work.
Joshi was speaking at the convocation of Barakatullah University, Bhopal on Monday.
The BJP MP in Lok Sabha said, “Trump Mahodaya ne waise to kathinaiyan badha di hai, lekin agar kisi student ko bahar jaane ka mauka mile toh unko wahan jakar reserach karni chahiye (Trump has added to the difficulties for students but if a student gets a chance to go abroad, he should go there for research work).”
Exhorting students to serve their nation Joshi said, “Prof Barkatullah Bhopali served in many countries but he didn’t settle down abroad. He came back and served our country.”
Joshi also said, “Students shouldn’t forget that they have their duties towards their country and the university too.”
Emphasizing on quality of education, Joshi said, “Students should concentrate on quality of their work not on quantity. They should look forward to getting a patent on their names.”
Joshi said, “India has made progress in many fields like technology, telecom and agriculture but a lot of work has to be done in some areas like malnutrition, poverty eradication, women safety and environment because the condition is very pitiable.”
In the programme, Joshi was conferred upon a degree of doctorate of Science.
