JMI vice-chancellor Najma Akhtar said, “I take this opportunity to congratulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the success of the mission. It is an occasion of national celebration and we are happier particularly to know that our students were also part of this historical mission. I congratulate them for the success and wish them good luck for their future endeavours. The JMI fraternity is proud of them.”
Akhtar also added that Bhardwaj, Kashif and Ahmad have become role models and current students will be motivated to work for taking the country to greater heights.
