She was addressing a gathering at the inaugural ceremony of the fifth regional centre of National Institute of Public Cooperation and Child Development (NIPCCD) at Mohali, a Press Information Bureau release said.
Four other NIPCCD regional centres are those at Bengaluru, Guwahati, Indore and Lucknow.
