The forum shall give its all round support to the “Architects of Change” in their drive to eradicate illiteracy, poverty and injustice and cause upliftment of the downtrodden by ensuring social equality, awakening of the masses by peaceful movements, participation in the free and fair electoral process, and to free higher education and research from the domain of particracy and nepotism.
