Mangaluru: Delivering the Yenepoya Foundation lecture at Yenepoya University, Bharat Ratna Awardee C.N.R Rao Saturday, said that there were many people living outside cities, like Bengaluru and Mangaluru, who lacked the opportunities to progress in life.
“There are 50 million people like this in the country. There will be at least 50 persons among them who have the talent to shine. Your (the educational institution) job and my job is to find such persons. There was a need to promote education, science and innovation in rural areas. Youngsters in rural areas are the future of India and their intellectual capacity should be unleashed,"
Earlier Chancellor of Yenepoya University Yenepoya Abdulla Kunhi conferred Prof. Rao with the Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa). Rao also inaugurated the Yenepoya Narcotics Educational Foundation of India on the occasion.
