Sharma stated that he respected the simple lifestyle of the Nagas. However, he claimed that this simplicity, in many a times, led to manipulation by certain parties or individual, leading to creating problems and corruption. 
Sharma maintained that one simple way to know that corruption was very much prevalent in Nagaland was to compare the difference in quality between public properties and private properties. He claimed that one reason why Nagas have not opposed corruption in a level that was needed to be opposed was because of its simplicity, adding that simplicity of Nagas was one major reason why Nagas have no demands. 
Speaking on Fundamental Rights and Human Rights, Sharma opined that human rights are always one step beyond fundamental rights. “Fundamental Rights have been extracted from our Human Rights”, he further added that Fundamental Rights are Human Rights. He also said that both Fundamental Rights and Human Rights could not be defined. 
On customary laws, Sharma said that if a case was to be solved in a village as per customary law, he appealed the village councils or heads to inform and interact with the police for it helps the police for future verification. He further added that systems and rules should be equal for all and said everyone should deserve a fair chance for explanation. 
Sharma also urged the gathering not to be very tolerant towards crimes, be it small or big, adding that once a person commits a crime, he will get the tendency to do it again. He concluded his speech by stating that bravery was not only about fighting with someone, but also about standing up against something wrong.
