Speaking on the occasion, Col. Rathore lauded the participants for their efforts. Appreciating the level of the competition, he said that the jury found it very difficult to declare the winners. He called upon all the participants, who could not win today, not to lose heart but work harder in life. The Minster said the situation should not be blamed for adverse results.

One should adapt to new situations, as the future is in one’s own hands. He called upon the youth to take responsibility for their and the country’s future.
