Speaking high about different aspects of LPU, Hon’ble Minister said: “With strong diversity at its campus, LPU is a global university.

Education is empowerment and it brings great transformation in life, society and everything.” Explaining that private sector is doing exuberantly well in present time, Mr Minister shared: “Our government is also working on public-private partnerships, where competition and collaboration between the two will certainly bring out the best of India.

Survive through competition and that is only the 21st Century India. It is really a challenge to improve government education sector, we will strive to correct it. Here I can say that both Public and Private sectors can co-exist and make India prosper. We want good education to all.”
