In his special address to the students and youth, he said that “Rajaji adorned several high positions in India, both during British Rule and after independence. He was known for his sagacity and wisdom while performing the roles in the Government and enactment of laws, his farsightedness in the matters that concern the nation, concern to the poor are all the hallmark of his great qualities. His sagacious prescription to the problems are to be mentioned. He imposed prohibition in the State, which saved the poor.
