Three students of Okhla have scooped medal of appreciation for their contribution to the formation of APJ Abdul Kalam library.
Plasma institute is establishing this library in Okhla and other parts of the country, particularly in Gaya, after the name of India’ former President Abdul Kalam.
While sharing the vision behind the project, Plasma director Rizwan Khan told OT.COM that today we distributed medal of appreciation to some of our students who have promised all help in establishing the library that will be open for the marginalised.
“I am thankful to some of my students who have come forward to help us. Our plan is to collect old books from residents and stock it in the library that is to be used for the poor students who due to financial reasons are not able to purchase books. Also, the library’s facilities will be open for free to all in Okhla,” said Khan.
