PATNA: Chanakya National Law University (CNLU) vice-chancellor A Lakhminath said here on Tuesday that even as the present-day education in India has become the worst victim of politics, the academics should strive hard to keep education above politics.
Delivering the valedictory address at the 71st orientation programme for college teachers of the state organized by Patna University’s Academic Staff College, Lakshminath observed that teachers must be responsible and try to become the role models for the younger generations. They should not only teach the subjects in classrooms but should also inspire the students to become responsible citizens and serve the society well.
