Former Rajya Sabha MP and BJP leader Anand Bhaskar Rapolu has written a letter to Union HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank to observe October 15, the birth anniversary of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, as National Students Day.
Anand Bhaskar Rapolu proposed to observe Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam's birth anniversary as Students Day throughout the country, in correlation with the United Nations, where this day has already been declared as World Students Day.
He urged the HRD Minister to observe this day with same ignite and enthusiasm, just like the entire nation observes other sensitizing events like June 21 as World Yoga Day and August 7 as National Handloom Day.
Since the day Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam passed away, several universities and institutions are observing October 15 in their own way, throughout the nation.
