During the meeting the Governor asked the varsities to play a crucial role by utilising the vast potential of students to create an effective awareness about Corona in society.
 
Purohit “insisted that compulsory wearing of masks, frequent washing and sanitation of hands and maintaining social distance must be practised in the fight against Corona,” it said. The teaching community should educate the students online about the importance of practising the corona appropriate behaviour. The students in turn should take the message to their homes and their family members and finally the message should disseminate into the community at large and the society should successfully fight against the coronavirus, he said.
