“After drawing inspiration from Prof. Lohia, I involved myself in making people aware about protecting the environment and preserving traditional grains and never looked back; today I am deeply satisfied by contributing something for the society,” he added.
The Nela ward councilor Rajendra Mohan said, “We take forward whatever we learn from the society and during the last natural disaster I remained amongst the people during the hour of need, being their representative and tried to create a sense of hope among them by rendering whatever little help I could do for them.”
