The campus director and chairman of the Centre for PG Studies Fr Dr Antony Prakash Monteiro in his message said, "Dashrath Manjhi, popularly known as Mountain Man is a legend who proved that nothing is impossible to achieve.

His 22 years of hard work became a success, as the road constructed by him is now used by villagers."
