Profound youth if enters politics then nation can see development. The dedication in politicians and the ability of youth can retain transparency. He asked students not to educate just for job but to face problems and to serve the country.

In gulf countries there is opportunity to demolish Mosques so as in foreign countries to demolish churches when there is development work for the nation. But in India, no such provision. Media has reported his speeches in a wrongful manner which he spoke at Guvahati. He also said media should probe the truth. And he is ready for a debate on this issue.

He also stressed about world acclamation to Sanskrit. He said that Sanskrit is the origin for many languages. NASA scientists study Sanskrit.  By learning this language one can develop core values in life. And also the habit of twisting the history and giving wrong information to the society will be shunned.
