Speaking at a brief inaugural programme, Ranjan congratulated all the stakeholders involved in bringing a dream project to a reality in order to facilitate the farmers. He acknowledged the organisation in having a lady as the CEO and termed as a good sign that the organisation has achieved a first step in leading a community with equal and collective responsibility.

With the inauguration of a new facility, he expressed confidence that the organisation would become a trend setter in fulfilling the desire target without depending on the government for subsidies. He also urged them to change their mindset and develop an idea to move forward saying that the society needs to go a long way. He also encouraged not to only harvest subsidy but harvest prosperity.

He was of the view that society would be able to move forward only through changing of mindset and approach, fostering self-stability and sustainable and reinvestment of mindset.
