Mr Minister looked much joyous to watch and hear the enthralling rhythmic steps and dhol-beats during ‘Bhangra presentation’. The onlookers just couldn’t sit, and all of them kept dancing along with the LPU squad.
This lively performance by LPU students was made at the national fest ‘Yuva Sangam’, on the occasion of the inauguration of 2nd ‘Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam’ by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India.

It’s indeed an honour for the University.” She added: “We are proud of our students who grow as all-rounders at the campus. They prove their position at the top be it the area of sports, studies, research, placements, innovations, cultural activities and more.”
In fact, LPU students practiced hard as they were to represent the culture of their Punjab State. Moreover, very few universities were selected to be part of the great national occasion.
