JAIPUR: Bhartiya Skill Development University organised a tree plantation drive in the memory of Chairman and Founder, Dr. Rajendra Kumar Joshi at its campus in Jaipur. Students and faculty planted over 300 trees around the BSDU campus.
Students were then assigned as guardians of one plant each wherein they will look after these plants as they grow and make sure that the plants are being watered regularly and cared for.
Dr. Rajendra Kumar Joshi was a role model to the university who worked every single day for the betterment of the country and the youth at large. Dr. Joshi has left behind his legacy of empowering the youth of India by skilling them, statement said.
BSDU is also trying to bring attention to the environmental crisis that the world is facing and point out how planting more trees can be a small step towards protecting the environment. Students and faculty also took an oath to stop the usage of plastic in order to reduce plastic wastage on and off campus.
Students pledged to stop use of plastic and use natural products such as paper or cloth bags, paper packaging etc. BSDU will stop the use of single-use plastic and students also learned the importance of reusing, reducing and recycling.
Dr. (Brig.) Surjit Singh Pabla, Vice Chancellor, Bhartiya Skill Development University, said, “The trees will be looked after by the students and they will take care of them during their entire stay in the university. This is to make them realize the importance of protecting the environment and how carelessness can impact it resulting in severe results.”
Dr. Ravi Gosain, Provost, BSDU, said, “These students will learn how to be responsible for the world they live in and how they themselves create the world they live in. It is essential for these youngsters to understand that they have to be careful about how they treat the earth. It is time to start taking measures and the young blood of this country should take charge to create a change.”
