The Delhi University will be implementing the NEP from the 2022-23 academic session, a move that has been criticised by a section of teachers. Stressing that the NEP must be looked at from a larger perspective, he also urged the teachers to work in nurturing students who work towards nation-building. "It shouldn't be about discipline, specific courses or the number of credits, the workload of teachers... We were producing good engineers and doctors earlier also and we were giving degrees earlier also. But we need to work on strengthening our country," he said.
The vice-chancellor also talked about the country's growth rate and stressed that "policies that compromise on the country's growth should not be supported". "We need a growth rate of 10 per cent in the next 10 years. I know that we will become a developed nation quickly and even before 2047. But the danger will be more as we will become a developed nation," he opined.

Emphasizing the role of technology in strengthening the country's security, he said the country cannot compromise the security on its borders. "We have always had a technological bent. But we should need the best of technology. We should produce it here, but if we are not able to do it, we should collaborate and if we are not able to do that also, then we should buy it... Beg, Borrow or steal, we need technology," he said.
