Describing universities as pillars of the Nation to make India economically strong, the governor urged the universities to produce employable youth in accordance to the need of the society.  He also said that the fruits of independence have not reached equitably to all the section of the people where only some section were enjoying the luxury while many citizens were downtrodden, which was not acceptable in a democracy. 

Governor, therefore, said that in a democratic and secular country every citizen should have equal rights.

Acharya also warned against self centred education, saying that those working only for his own benefit or family were “looters of society” and further urged all to work towards strengthening their respective tribe, village and nation.
