Dr Praveen Kumar, Secretary, said, it’s a golden lettered moment in the history of the TTWREIS that 15 students got a chance to visit different countries and their life’s journey from remote villages to international stage is truly remarkable. He congratulated the students for their rare feat and attributed the success to hard work and commitment of teachers and students. Dr Kumar thanked the Chief Minister for launching 55 residential degree colleges for marginalized students under the KG-PG Mission.
