It is necessary for all of us not to let the sacrifices of our elders go in vain but to pledge that we will make this country prosperous together. We will actively participate in the security and development of this country, only then we will be able to repay the sacrifices of our elders. The chairman, PAL thanked all the scholars for participating in the event.
