Appreciating the efforts of Panjab University in organising the first Memorial Lecture, Mr Naidu stressed that he is proud to be the Chancellor of the University which has produced a Parliamentarian and Leader like Sushma ji. He said memorial lectures or commemoration events are meant to not only pay tributes but also inspire the younger generation to emulate the qualities of great men and women.
University Vice Chancellor Raj Kumar, in his welcome address, said the University is proud if its alumna and plans to organise memorial lecture every year. He introduced the Vice President and gave a brief sketch of Sushma Ji’s life and career.
