Gorakhpur: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said that it was matter of concern that educated youths are joining terrorist organisations.
"Youths are contributing for development of better techniques world wide. However, it was matter of concern that the educated youths are joining terrorist organisations," he said while delivering convocation address at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gorakhpur University here.
Emphasising on "character building", Rajnath said that only through a good character social stability can be attained.
"As compared to Lord Ram, Ravana was rich and powerful but it was due to his character that people pay obeisance to Ram. We should take a pledge to make India 'vishwa guru' once again by progressing in our respective fields," he said.
On the occasion, Chancellor of state universities Governor Ram Naik was also present.
During the convocation, 118 students including 79 girls were given gold medals.
