Patna: The 'Kalam Message' bus that was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rameshwaram a few weeks ago to spread the message of late President of India APJ Abdul Kalam, arrived at Patna University campus on Monday amidst warm welcome by teachers and students alike.
The ultra-modern bus carrying books and images of Dr. Kalam is going through all the major college campuses around the nation with the aim to inspire students by words and deeds of the former President who, breaking the mold of traditional Indian politicians, spoke to school and college students asking them to reach for the sky and never compromise with their ideals and moral duties.
Patna University Vice Chancellor Dr. Ras Bihari Singh said it was a matter of great pride that the bus came to Patna University in the year the university is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
Patna University Pro Vice Chancellor Dr. Dolly Sinha, Dr. A K Jha, Registrar Ravindra Kumar, Proctor G K Pillai and a number of university officials and students were present on the occasion.
Later, the Vice Chancellor flagged off the bus to make a stop at Patna Science College where it was warmly received by Principal Sudhir Kumar Srivastava.
