फिर धीरे धीरे हरियाणा कृषि विश्वविद्यालय हिसार के अधिकारियों के साथ मिलकर किसानों की खेती संबंधित समस्याएं पूछकर कृषि वैज्ञानिक साहेबान से उनके समाधान की जानकारी लेकर किसान भाईयों तक उनका समाधान पहुँचाने का प्रयास कर रहे हैं और ये कार्य तब से अब तक निरंतर जारी है ।

जहां तक बात है सड़क सुरक्षा अभियान कार्यक्रम की उसके लिए भी 5 साल से लगातार वे लगे हुए हैं जिसके परिणाम स्वरूप माननीय केन्द्रीय परिवहन मंत्री श्री नितिन गडकरी जी ने 18 जनवरी 2021 को गुड सेमेरिटन अवार्ड से सम्मानित किया है ।
