Prof. Manoj K. Dhar, Vice Chancellor, University of Jammu today exhorted youth to rededicate themselves towards nation building with renewed vigour and work for heralding peace and tranquility across the country. 

"An onerous responsibility lies on our youth to contribute in the gigantic effort of steering the nation and the state towards peace, progress and all round development", the Vice Chancellor said while unfurling tricolour on the 72nd Independence Day at the University Campus here. 

The University of Jammu scripted a new chapter in its history by celebrating this Independence Day by hoisting the tricolour on the specially erected 135 feet high mast at the central place of the Campus in presence of students, scholars , faculty members, officers, office bearers of various associations, staff and their families.

Prof. Dhar referred to the maxim that the basis of great nations lie on great universities and said that it is a proud moment for all to see the University of Jammu figuring among twelve distinguished Category one institutions of the country. This has become possible due to consistent efforts of the successive Vice Chancellors, teachers, officers, non- teaching staff, scholars and students who deserve accolades.

The Vice Chancellor pledged to carry forward this odyssey of the University of Jammu to make it an enviable institution of excellence,  not only at  the national level but international level too. " For this we all will have to work with missionary spirit, dedication and devotion", he asserted and added that Universities can contribute immensely towards change through the medium of research and scientific advancement. Therefore, he said , it is imperative to tailor curriculum in such a way which promotes productivity and encourages youth for employability.

The Vice Chancellor exuded confidence that the scholars and the students of the Jammu University who are second to none would contribute towards the upliftment of the society. He said the pass outs of this University are manning important positions in different spheres and contributing by settings up their own ventures. 

Prof. Dhar elaborately dwelled upon the freedom struggle and sacrifices of  great visionaries who made the dream of independent India come true. 

"Let us resolve to put in our best as responsible citizens of this nation to make India great in the comity of nations at the strength of hard work, commitment and devotion", the Vice Chancellor said and extended his Independence Day greetings to all.
