In his address, CEM Pramod Boro said that the foundation stone laying for the Forest School and Climate Change Research Centre at Rwomari was a historic achievement for the education sector of the Bodolan Territorial Region (BTR). He said that this institution would have all required facilities and infrastructure where students of this area would have scope for study on forest subject and do research work on climate change.

Pramod Boro also asserted that their government took several developmental initiatives since they had assumed the power of BTR. He said, "We want to start a new journey by taking up various schemes in our area to mark the celebration of 75th Independence Day of India. In this connection, we have decided to dedicate the upcoming September month to the poor people, October month to farmers, November month to women and December month to the education sector. In such way, we have prepared our plan till August 15, 2022 so that we can properly develop sector-wise in our region."

Appraising about giving allotment of a total of 200 bighas of land for establishment of this institution at Rowmari by his government, Boro also asked the forest officials to prepare a proper master plan prior to start the construction work for its design.
