He discussed the importance of the importance of skill development courses saying “I had vowed to create 50,000 jobs in five years in Mihan, and today there are 23,000 people working. Companies like Boeing and Airbus have started their assembly factories in Mihan and would be requiring more workforce in the next two years for assembly of Dassault Falcon aircraft. For this, students’ skills need to be developed and polished.”
He was also observed motivating children to chose science fields, “The waste material remaining after producing sugar is great for making hand-wash, face-wash, and detergents. Those products are now worth crores of rupees in market. This was possible because there was ready research available. Students must take up science and research as their careers,” he added\
He concluded by saying “People sitting here are all my college friends and over the years nothing has changed between us. The friendship you make in college days lasts a lifetime.”
