Governor gave hearty wishes to all the students and MPUAT Family. In her speech she told, “We are facing so much troubles in agriculture such as slow growth in the production of certain crops like pulses. Large post-harvest losses sustained in the production of fruits and vegetables due to lack of cold storage and transportation support systems which further compounds the problem”.

She also showed her belief in youth of India addressing students, “You are the future creator of this nation, keep faith in yourself and expand your abilities”.
