Apart from this they have also committed to bring in a scheme which could take care of higher educational need of our meritorious needy students. I must welcome all these initiatives as all of them accumulate to a developed Boudh one day what we are dreaming of now”.

Among all the initiatives of BDPL’s Vikshit Boudh campaign, Vidwaan is the one which would lead to a developed society. I wish the students good luck in their future endeavor. As far as development of Boudh is concerned, we are committed towards continued contribution towards the Dream Vikshit Boudh from all aspects”.
