Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu lays the stone for XLRI Amaravati campus at Ianvolu village in Guntur district on Thursday. Father E Abraham, Director, XLRI, and others are also seen.
XLRI practices what it preaches. It observes value orientation in every sphere of life. I am happy to learn that XLRI has completed 70 glorious years of educating global business leaders and focused on training future business leaders.”
He criticised that despite the mandate of the Central government to establish 11 Central universities under the AP Reorganisation Act, they did not establish them in true spirit. The State government allotted sufficient land to the 11 institutions and spent huge amount from its own pocket, he said.
