This was followed by a formal meeting wherein Jadav Payeng addressed the staff and students of the university. Jadav Payeng in his speech called upon the students of the university to carry out plantation as much as they can right from their student’s life.  He also had the opinion that environmental science should be taught to the students to motivate them to make the earth green through plantation.  The welcome speech was delivered by the Registrar of AWU, Sewali Bordoloi.
