Professor Sobti also added that Panjab University, Chandigarh is one of the pioneering institutions of higher education and research in India and has been enlisted by the Govt. of India as one of the eminent institutions with sufficient potential for excellence in all fields of knowledge and research.  As a leading University of the nation, it is our bounden duty to provide quality education and produce the enlightened citizens for the future work of the nation.  As the Govt. of India has decided to launch 1500 new universities in the next decade, Panjab University will try its utmost to produce the excellent academics, administrators and leaders equipped with ethical values to take up the different important responsibilities in the new and expanding horizon of the education".

Expressing gratitude to Professor Manmohan Singh, the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Professor Sobti announced, "Funds will not be a constraint for the rapid development of the education system  of the nation and Panjab University is the living example of it – thanks to the largesse given to us by the Prime Minister, Professor Manmohan Singh".

Professor Sobti also assured the audience that, "By 2012 Panjab University will have a new look both in terms of infrastructural and academic developments which will add one more glorious chapter in the enviable record of Panjab University in the domain of public service".
