Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank also joined the event via videoconferencing. During his videoconferencing, PM Modi said,  People tell me that the AMU campus is like a city in itself. We see a Mini India among different departments, dozens of hostels, thousands of teachers and professors. The diversity which we see here is not only the strength of this university but also of the entire nation. We must not forget this power of diversity, nor let it get weakened. We should work together to ensure that spirit of 'Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat' grows stronger day by day in the campus of Aligarh Muslim University he added. PM Modi said the school dropout rate among Muslim girls was more than 70 per cent and this situation persisted in India for 70 years. In these circumstances, the government started Swachh Bharat Mission, built toilets in villages and toilets for school-going girls. Now this rate has fallen to nearly 30 per cent, PM Narendra Modi said. PM Modi also talked about the safe future of every Indian citizen and said that the nation is on the right path. He talked about a nation free from prejudice. He also added the banking facility reached to the common people, pucca houses provided to over 2 crore people, and reach of LPG to more than 8 crore kitchens.
