In evening of 10th September, colourful cultural programme was staged, where some delegates also had taken part.
We express our sincere thanks to NFPE, Karnataka Circle and also the Reception Committee where Dr. Abdul Qadeer was the Chairman while Com. Mangala Bhagwat was the General Convenor. All are happy and delighted with the vast and sincere arrangement for the convention. Dr. Abdul Qadeer, Chairman, Reception Committee and also Chairman, Shaheen Group of Institutions, Bidar invited all the delegates/leaders in dinner at his institution. We had an unique experience there. Girls/Students of this institution coming from different states greeted us in their respective local languages. We had such a feeling that we were in mini-India, the root of its cultural heritage being ‘Unity in Diversity’ which the present Central Govt. is trying to finish in the name of so called Hinduism.
The delegates reached at the venue till 9th September night were invited to take dinner by Sardar Balbir Singh, President, Prabhandhak Commitee Gurudwara Nanak Jhira Saheb, Bidar. Both the institutions rendered selfless services to the delegates for which we are expressing our gratitude in them.
