Allahabad, Dec 25 : President Pranab Mukherjee Wednesday inaugurated a new building complex of the Jagat Taran Girls' Inter College here and also unveiled a statue of the late Chintamani Ghosh in the complex.

"Youth are the builders of our future and of the nation. We will have to make them the medium for change and development through education," Mukherjee said.

He said children should be taught that they should not merely be good students but also inculcate in themselves the desire and energy to serve society.
