Varanasi: Students and faculty of Banaras Hindu University were in for a surprise when Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed that he had invited his 'personal guests' to the convocation ceremony at the university.

Speaking at the centenary year convocation of BHU, Monday, PM Modi said, “Today I have some personal guests here. I have called them specially. They are students from government schools.”

“My wish was that such students should get a chance to see what a convocation is all about,” he said.

This is an effort to give wings to their dreams, the Prime Minister said.

“I am confident that these school students would have today resolved to win medals on their own,” he added.

The Prime Minister also requested BHU gold medal winners to talk to the school students and encourage them to aim big in life.
