He was the Home Minister in the first Modi Ministry. He also served as the minister of Road Transport and Highways and Agriculture under the prime ministership of Vajpayee.
VC SRHU, Dr Vijay Dhasmana stated that preparations are in full swing to make the event a memorable one. “It is a matter of pride for us that SRHU has within a span of few years of its founding become a coveted centre of learning, imparting quality education, especially for students from the interiors of Uttarakhand and adjoining states. Credit it due to our teachers, staff and students for making the institution a proud establishment. The mission of Swami Rama Himalayan University is to transform lives by nurturing excellence in the creation and dissemination of knowledge through research, innovation and technology, for providing service to humanity in consonance with the ideals of Swami Rama. We are thrilled that Rajnathji has consented to be the Chief Guest.”
Continuing further he said, “We at Swami Rama Himalayan University aspire to be recognized amongst the top Universities of India, by fostering life-long learning, creativity and service.”
It was in 2016 that the first convocation was held wherein the then President of India, Pranab Mukherjee was the chief guest. In 2017 Vice President Venkaiah Naidu was the chief guest, while Baby Rani Maurya was chief guest in 2019.
This post-Covid year apart from the degrees, as many as 24 toppers will be awarded with Gold Medals. Three students will receive Best Graduate Award and five students will receive Ph. D degrees.
Swami Rama Himalayan University was established in February 2013. Its birth was an effectuation of the dream of revered Indian Yogi, H.H. Swami Rama, who conceptualized the framework for the people of Uttarakhand wherein ‘education’ and ‘health’ were easily accessible and attainable by the meritorious.
SRHU today stands as a means to the realization of that dream! Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust (HIHT), backed by the legacy of Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences (HIMS), promotes the University, which is the first private medical college of the state.
SRHU is strategically located about 25 kilometers southeast of Dehradun city, in close vicinity of Jolly Grant Airport, in the northern Indian state, Uttarakhand.
