He said this while inaugurating the Cardiology Department at Amnah Bibi Hospital in Ahmadabad, Gujarat, on Monday.

He said that in the present times the importance of vocational education cannot be denied. The biggest problem after education is employment and vocational education plays an important role in providing employment.
