He did not only take an active part in the freedom struggle but also inspired many other youths to join the same not only while he was alive but even after his death. He further mentioned that we at GGNIMT believe in transforming our students into useful and responsible citizens of the nation and through such events we can motivate our students to imbibe the qualities of the unforgetful hero.
