No organisation, institution, administration, society or nation can achieve its targets without devotion, dedication and ending corruption, indiscipline and red-tapism.

He evinced keen interest in listening to the experiences of senior officers dealing with thrust areas of development such as power, public health, irrigation, education, employment, transport, DRDA, panchayats, women empowerment and health.

Babu Parmanand called upon the officers to expedite development works honestly on priority basis in the national interest. He appreciated the decision of the state government to implement job oriented schemes, like the Prime Ministerís Rozgar Yojna, to provide gainful and sustainable employment to the unemployed. The Governor reminded them of the constitutional obligation of the state government enunciated in the Directive Principles of the State Policy that the state would provide employment to the youth.

Babu Parmanand reiterated that it was our collective responsibility to make our country great, strong and prosperous. We would have to develop new thinking and work culture to check the menace of unemployment which forced them to take to crime.
