Thereafter, Prof. Poonia delivered his special address and informed the audience about various activities being carried out at AICTE to ensure students get quality education. He started with an amazing reference to Mahatma Gandhi and the importance of being connected to the roots. He talked about how Indian students excel in the world yet lack behind in terms of decision making, aptitude, and problem-solving abilities.
