After seeing Vision 2015 documents prepared by HZCT, he advised Mr. Ghiasuddin Babu Khan and other Trustees to revise the same, as for such a wonderful programme, people would definitely come forward to help the poorest of the poor and brilliant students. He advised the Trustees to establish a Centre on par with Jawahar Knowledge Centre which could impart knowledge in Communication skills, Personality Development, Carrier Guidance, etc. and promised that he would give full cooperation in this regard.
