New Delhi [India], August 12 (ANI): Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday felicitated 'Super-25' students of the Veer Gatha Competition and hailed the creativity of students through their entries.
During this, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan was also present.
"I was not only very happy, but also pleasantly surprised to see your creativity. What wonderful expressions do I see in your paintings, poems, essays and videos. I saw the journey from freedom struggle till today in your entries," Singh told students.
