Jalandhar: British politician and Member of the House of Lords, Honourable Lord Diljit Singh Rana MBE paid a special visit to Lovely Professional University. Paying back to his motherland, he has an aim to transform rural India by developing infrastructure and means for quality education. He was accorded a hearty & befitting welcome at LPU with floral presentations and mementoes, to cherish memories.

The Chairman of Lovely Group, Mr. Ramesh Mittal, Vice-Chairman Mr. Naresh Mittal, Chancellor of LPU Mr. Ashok Mittal, Pro Chancellor Ms. Rashmi Mittal, Vice Chancellor Dr. Rameshwar Kanwar, and Director General Er. HR Singla were specially present on this occasion. It was also a great day for the Boxers from 70 Universities from across India as Honourable Lord Rana specially visited at the ongoing All India Inter University Boxing championship arena to cheer the fighters up for their glorious win. He also had interactions with the students and staff members during his visit to different blocks of hostels, faculty, laboratories and administration.

Greeting Honourable Guest of the day, Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal apprised him of the different endeavours at the university in different fields of academics, sports, cultural activities, research and other national and international achievements. Lord Rana was also led to the boxing arena by LPU's Deputy Director Mr. Aman Mittal and Sr. Dean Dr. Sanjay Modi to bless the boxers from 70 universities ongoing for their talent display at quarter-finals of All India Inter University Boxing Championship. His benign presence elated all the sports lovers and 88 boxers from 32 Universities, now to further compete for coveted Gold or Silver Medals.  It is to be noted that the Women Championship Trophy has already been won by the girls of Maharshi Dayanad University Rohtak.  Now, men boxers are competing to grab 11 gold, 11 silver, 22 bronze medals and 1 best boxer award on 7th instant

Seeing the Infrastructure and technology usage at the university and on interacting with the students, Honourable Lord Rana felt immensely happy on pulsing the fast changes in education scenario: "The total international standards which are being provided to the students in Punjab needs special  approvals and commendations. Prior to here all such developments could only be envisaged in the southern belt of India. I am very happy that such great educational Institutions have altered the situation and made Punjab feel proud of having the largest University of India on its sacred land for the benefit of many thousands of  Indian as well as foreign students."
