VELLORE: While delivering the 29th convocation address at the VIT University on Saturday, Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu called upon engineering graduates aspiring to go abroad to return to their homeland and support fellow citizens.

“My advice is go [abroad], but get back to take part and enjoy the fruits of development that is taking place here,” he told them. Handing over the degree and medals to the students, the minister, quoting a UNIDO report said ,”Every year one lakh Indian professionals leave India amounting to a resource loss of over US $ 2 billion.”

While the government was investing valuable resources on higher education, this brain drain could be averted if they stayed back here and made their talent and skills available for the development of this country.
