Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Satyapal Singh ji said that we have the highest number of educated youth in the world but there is a lack of quality, therefore the Government of India is considering a new education policy.

Cabinet Minister Dr. Harshvardhan Ji said that the task of teaching is God's work and full thrust of the present government is on skill development in which 0. 5 million youths would be covered under the scheme.

After receiving the honor, Shri Kunwar Shekhar Vijendra ji in his address said that universities have a deep relationship with society . Apart from education, the institutions plays a pivotal role in the upliftment of the society and the knowledge acquired from educational institutions can be used for this purpose. Linking higher education to social reality is very important. Keeping that in mind, it is also necessary to review the ranking system of universities, as the same ranking system cannot be suitable for different types of educational institutions. He added that just like United
Nations in political arena, there should be an institution like United Nations in the field of education to create an innovative education system for the new century.
