Punjab Governor Malik Muhammad Rafique Rajwana has given a good advice to the students. He asked them to avoid sitting idle at their homes after obtaining degrees. They must join practical life making their contributions in whatever little they can towards building a strong, prosperous and developed Pakistan . 

The Governor who happens to be Chancellor of all public universities in the province gave this advice to the students at 126th Convocation of country’s premier Punjab University in Lahore the other day. 

According to the reports in the newspapers, the governor said that real test of the students has started with their receiving degrees and they must serve their motherland Pakistan because they are our future. 

He even asked the educated youth to join politics as well as the nation needed sane and sensible politicians also, freedom of expression is everybody’s right but this should not spoil others basic rights while exercising their own rights. 

He pointedly stated that there is difference between education and knowledge, present era belongs to research , technology and specialization, we must learn to appreciate good initiatives and deeds of others , all political parties are patriotic but difference of opinion cannot be ruled out as such buit criticism on negative things should be positive and constructive aiming at improving the matters. However, he pointedly and emphatically also said that there is no difference of opinion with regard to Pakistan, its democratic institutions, parliament and economy which should strengthened in furtherance of the supreme national interests. 

Hopefully, the students who have received degrees in different subjects and are planning to enter practical life in different fields will be doing their work honestly, sincerely, efficiently shunning all lust and greed for amassing wealth illegally. Thanks.
