Jalandhar, Oct 31 (IANS) Lesotho Prime Minister Pakalitha Bethuel Mosisili on Saturday urged the youth to follow the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi so that the world became a better place.
“It is only through quality education that a country shapes its children; however, quality without principles is one of the seven deadly sins. Broaden your horizons and go ahead in the world with all goodness within you as true ambassadors of your alma mater,” Mosisili said while addressing the students at the fifth convocation of Lovely Professional University (LPU) near here.
He said LPU was a unique institution that had opened its doors to students from Africa in the true spirit of Mahatma Gandhi and contemporary Africa-India cooperation.
A degree of Doctor of Letters (honoris causa) was conferred on Mosisili at the convocation, also addressed by Punjab Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki and LPU Chancellor Ashok Mittal.
LPU has on its rolls many students from foreign countries, including from Africa.
