Need to be aware of bad practices like ‘Valentine’s Day’! – Principal Praful Kulkarni, Gogte-Joglekar College
After Sanjay Joshi of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti presented a memorandum to Prof. Praful Kulkarni, Principal of Gogte-Joglekar College, Principal Kulkarni said that there should be awareness in the society as well as among the students about bad practices like ‘Valentine’s Day’. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is doing a good job. Students cannot be addressed collectively as there are currently restrictions during corona infection; however, we will display your memorandum on the notice board.
When he learned that the Samiti had created a ‘Kranti Gatha Pradarshan’ to inculcate national pride in the younger generation, Principal Kulkarni said, “You can put up flex boards in the college premises to create awareness against the bad practice of Valentine’s Day. The students will learn from it”.
