*Researches and studies should be people-centric : *Chief Minister Siddaramaiah*
Pragativahini News, Bengaluru : Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that universities should not indulge in dividing the society due to lack of social thinking.
He held a discussion for about 45 minutes with the delegation of vice chancellors of various universities at the Home Office Krishna and expressed concern over universities deviating from their objectives.
Universities should strive hard to ensure social values and social justice. Universities have the power to shape the future of the country more scientifically. If the universities are regressive against their true objectives, the future of the students and the country also becomes dark. Our government is committed to strengthen higher education on a scientific basis. He said that he will not accept anything other than this.
