V said that the objective of the education should be reducing poverty and brining equality in the society so that the energy of the youth could be utilized for the socio-economic upliftment of the poor. He hoped that students will join the voluntary efforts under the guidance of learned professors. This was followed by another meeting that was organised at Uttari Orissa University, Baripad. On the occasion, Shri. Rajagopal P.V said that honoring the thoughts of Gandhi jee, there is a need for youth to come forward in social sector.
