Around 800 students from Pre-University College, Graduation courses and school students were present at the event. Emphasising on the need for female students to be educated and aware of their surroundings, Bidari said, “Girls need all round development which will help them become responsible citizens of the country. Like women are expected to take care of everything at home, education will help them become aware of everything across the city and country. Besides, in case of harassment, education will help them handle the situation. The police department too aims at all round development and encourages education for students to become good citizens.” Also present at the event were R Ananda, Chairman, Sri Sai Educational Institutions and membersfrom NGOs supporting the cause.
