VELLORE: The Inspector General of Police(North Zone) M N Manjunatha has exhorted the all-round development of students and called upon the student community to engage themselves in rigorous physical activities and extra-curricular activities. He made this appeal while inaugurating the Students Council at the VIT university on Monday, which also coincided with the  Engineers Day celebrations.

The IG, who was the chief-guest of the function, asked students to assume the role of finding innovative solutions, to tackle disasters such as tsunami and the present flood situation as in Jammu and Kashmir.

IG Manjunatha, after paying floral tributes to the portrait of Sir Visvesvaraya said, if one wanted to become a good human being, one should develop ‘tolerance’, because tolerance alone will help a person to imbibe leadership qualities. VIT chancellor G Viswanathan in his presidential address said, India was blessed with a demographic dividend that can be converted into great wealth for the country. The youth of the country should develop discipline and commitment, to serve the country along with their academic qualifications, he added.

Professor and VC Dr S Narayanan said, students aspiring to become great engineers, should develop leadership qualities. Student-leaders must possess the quality of a good coach, must be creative and maintain good relationships with all.

Vice President G V Selvam appealed to students to think of all they could do for the country. He said that hard work and honesty will bring prosperity to the country. Vice-president Sekar Viswanathan said, the students’ council and representatives should engage themselves in team work.
