Addressing the gathering Mr. Sajjan Jindal recollected his first meeting with Mr. Vaghul, during which the idea of establishing a liberal arts institution with the assistance of industrialists was broached. "I was impressed with the concept and quickly agreed to lend my support. I am overjoyed to see the institution in such a wonderful form, creating hundreds of young people who are beneficial to society. The JSW Block, which stands tall on campus, demonstrates our commitment to Krea's progress, and we will be delighted to continue our collaboration in elevating the institution to new heights," Mr. Jindal added.
