Arunachal governor B D Mishra on Saturday inaugurated the ‘Cultural cum Food Fest 2018’ organised by Don Bosco College in its campus at Jullang near here.
In his inaugural address, the governor complemented the students and teachers for organising the festival, which showcases the rich traditions, particularly the culture, fine art and cuisines of the state.
Impressed by the enthusiastic participation of the students, the governor called upon them to prepare themselves for the future challenges. He advised them to develop scientific temper, humanism and spirit for inquiry and reform with a view to take the state and nation forward.
Mishra also advised each and every student to ensure that every child in the age group of 6 to 14 years goes to school.
This, he said is the social responsibility of every individual and the same will promote humanism.
One of the Swachh Bharat ambassadors, the governor exhorted the students and teachers to take part in cleanliness drives and keep the surrounding, starting from the college campus, the roads, colony and town clean.
The governor appreciated the “preventive system” of education of the college, which requires personal and dedicated involvement of the teachers in moulding the students into good persons and useful citizens of the country.
Don Bosco College rector Rev Father CC Jose and principal Rev Father Jose George also spoke on the occasion.
Later the governor accompanied by First Lady Neelam Mishra and Rajiv Gandhi University vice chancellor Professor Saket Kushwaha visited the tribal houses, where different types of cuisines of Arunachal Pradesh were presented.
