"We have to built a new nation and in order to build such a nation our people must have knowledge. In order to acquire knowledge one must study and study persistently and painstakingly. But how one can study? How anyone can increase knowledge when no facilities of any sort are available? Therefore it is upto us to make every facility available to those who want to study and if there are any impediments they must be ruthlessly demolished.
People must be taught and educated to be staunch optimistic men and women, who fear no obstacles, who understand self interest as well as national interest. They must have lofty ideals with high cultural and moral standards, supreme devotion to the state and supreme loyalty to the interest of the people."
