Narendra Modi addressed the students on the occassion of first convocation of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University.

As far as the financial crisis is concerned as situations change, within 2-5 years, we can solve that problem but if we are to save mankind from the energy crisis, if we want to get the world out of it, it is incumbent upon us that we take a long view with a holistic approach and give a rethink to the energy sector. And at the world level take strides in a new direction and come up with a battle plan so as to save humanity from this impending calamitous occurrence. If you want to fight these problems only energy sources will not get you the solution. If we want to tackle these problems then we must utilize these energy sources efficiently and we will also need a human resources chain, able youth will be required to work for energy management, and hence to tackle the energy crisis just as energy sources is an important field in the same manner those who are concerned with human resources management in this field are just as important. And Gujarat understanding the long term necessity for this founded the Pandit Deendayal University.

Inspired by the thoughts of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay we work for the cause of humanity. In the last century Gandhi, Lohia and Deendayal, three thinkers for India's future, believing in the important principles of loving our environment, thinking about the happiness of the most downtrodden in society, all encompassing development and serving Daridra Narayan, had tried to show the way to development. As this university has been named after Pandit Deendayal, when the Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC) discovered India's biggest gas fields, we announced that the income that would accrue from the first well would be utilized for India's poor and we'd use it to serve Daridra Narayan as a thought befitting him. Today it makes me proud that thanks to this university that has been named after that
mahapurush (great man) we are dedicating to our country this human capital, this human prosperity, this youth power. Youth power will help the world in the management of the crisis it is going through by making use of its education, its experience and its knowledge. I wish all these student friends who're about to begin their new life well and many congratulations to you all.

Pandit Deendayal University is popularly known as the Petroleum University. When we'd first begun it, we'd thought then that as Gujarat is emerging as the Petro-capital of India we will need people who take a special interest in these matters but as we've taken this work forward we've realized that though the name may simply remain Petroleum University, this university must be ready to encompass the entire energy sector - be it solar energy or nuclear energy, in all these sectors we must do research and with the aim of taking mankind forward this university progresses,

I had once written a letter to the Prime Minister and I had requested him that in the way that different countries have their organizations such as the G8 summit, the OPEC meet, the SAARC meet, why doesn't India take the lead and bring together countries which benefit from a great deal of sunlight. Those countries where solar energy can be utilized optimally should come together, make a corpus fund and set aside money for research to develop the easiest and cheapest methods so that humanity may profit from solar energy. I believe that the day is not far away when India takes the lead in bringing together these solar surplus countries as well as in the solar power sector and Gujarat's Petroleum University will also contribute greatly. We shall lead the world in a new direction.

Development projects

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of around 31 km long project for four laning of the National Highway from Pinjore to Nalagarh on NH-105, worth over Rs. 1690 crore. The project road is a major connecting link for the traffic from Ambala, Chandigarh, Panchkula and Solan /Shimla going towards Bilaspur, Mandi and Manali. About 18 km stretch of this four-lane national highway falls under Himachal Pradesh and the remaining portion falls in Haryana. This highway will ensure better transport facilities in Nalagarh-Baddi, the industrial hub of Himachal Pradesh, and will also give a fillip to further industrial development in the region. It will also boost tourism in the state.

Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the Medical Device Park at Nalagarh, which will be built at a cost of about Rs 350 crore. MoUs of more than Rs. 800 crore have already been signed for setting up industries in this Medical Device Park. The project will significantly enhance employment opportunities in the region.

Prime Minister will also inaugurate the Government Hydro Engineering College at Bandla. Costing about Rs 140 crore, the college will help make available trained manpower for hydro power projects, in which Himachal Pradesh is one of the leading states. It will help in upskilling the youth and providing ample job opportunities in the hydro power sector.
