People are afraid to take timely decisions. He quoted research on leadership failure, 90% of which is because of character, morality and integrity. He stated that there are plenty of opportunities in the country and the country can be a very rich country if we all work together with purpose and vision. Students were extremely motivated by his very enlightening speech.
Mr. Kansakar highlighted that most of the people blame others but do not focus on owns work. The private sector should be given priority as they contribute 70-80% in the economic development.
