Andhra CM asks students to come up with new ideas

Kadapa: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today called on students to come up with new ideas in different fields for their own prosperity and also for larger benefit of society.

Speaking at the second convocation ceremony of IIITs of Edupulapaya and Noojiveedu near here this evening, Naidu advised students to work with new ideas to prosper in future.

He said the TDP-led Government is providing Internet connectivity for just Rs 149 to every household and added all other facilities will be provided to help students achieve their goals.

Naidu told students there is no short cut to success and advised them to work hard to achieve their goals in life.

Later the Chief Minister awarded gold medals to six toppers from the two IIITs.

Human Resources Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao said the Government has established two more IIITs – at Ongole and Srikakulam – with intake of 1,000 students each.

Though the Government intends to accommodate 2,000 students in each IIIT, due to some constraints the number has been restricted to 1,000, he said.
