Speaking as the Chief Guest, Dr. R.K. Ranjan said that there had been strong political turbulence in the country before the coming of Narendra Modi led Government at the Centre. Because of the state of affairs, there was no momentum of development but since 2014, after the coming of BJP led government at the Centre, many developmental activities had been taken up in a strong pace. He said, now is the time to recapitulate the developmental activities targeting inclusive and sustainable benefits to the people taken up by the government.

Regarding the Arm Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA, 1958), Dr. Ranjan said that Narendra Modi led government is actively considering replacing the act with a new humanitarian law.
