MLC Arvind Kumar Sharma gives speech on National Education Policy under auspices of Vidya Bharti Uchha Shiksha Sansthan & Dr Shakuntala Misra National Rehabilitation University in inauguration session of National Seminar in Lucknow.
Love & Affection showers on A K sharma in and around his native village. A combination of fatherly, motherly and brotherly affection was visible among the exhilarated crowd of people from 15 kms before on way to his village. All sections of people, young and old gathered to proudly greet someone who is their own.
In the village, it was a scene to be seen. For the first time, literally the entire village had gathered and remained there till late evening to welcome and bless him. He responded by expressing his memories, relating his love to children, counting the blessings of elders and invoking the grace of local deities.
Not only his house and compound but the entire village was in festive mood for the three days that he spent in the village. He responded by going door to door in the village to express regard and gratitude.
Due to efforts of A K Sharma, the first regular train between Mau and Delhi (Anand Vihar) has been started. It was inaugurated by the Rail Minister, Shri Piyush Goyal. Welcoming the train and thanking Prime Minister and Rail Minister, A K Sharma said that its not just a train connectivity. It is a vehicle for speeding the progress of Purvanchal. He also said that it will connect ‘Mau with Modi’ and ‘Purvanchal with Piyush Goyal’.
Echoing the love, warmth and energy of the people who gathered along with A K Sharma, Shri Goyal called him friend and ‘Bade Bhai’ and praised the brave step that he has taken by leaving the high post of IAS and joining politics. He also said that its a good beginning and good people are required in politics.
Rail Minister further assured all help for development of Uttar Pradesh including Purvanchal through the Rail Ministry.
This town thinks A K Sharma is ‘Made in Mau’ and this literally moved him. He had so many memories to recall and share about the streets, the vendors, people and the deities. He called people by name and visited the tea-mithai shops of his childhood.
In a grand reception, people from all over Purvanchal and of ￼all sections had gathered. Similarly, the lawyers of the local court and the district BJP also organized separate receptions. In his speeches, he lamented that progress of Mau has been stalled since several decades. He added that though Modi and Yogi Governments are doing their best for development, the deficit and the ditch is so deep that it requires a major pull and push.
He promised that he will do his best to realize what he pronounced as the blessing of local Deity: ‘शीतला माई का वरदान, मऊ में आये फिर मुस्कान’ |
In continuation to his Purvanchal Tour, A K Sharma visited multiple locations across Azamgarh. His native District at birth, Azamgarh gave him even bigger response. He had a grand welcome right at the entry of Azamgarh. Large number of people from diverse communities, sections and age group stood together for several hours to bless him. He visited a number of locations along with enthusiastic party workers and friends. It was an overwhelming experience filled with pure love and affection for a leader hailing from Purvanchal.
As if he is specially liking Azamgarh, he also attended two more programmes on his way back. In his speeches he requested people to have faith in BJP and its leadership. He promised that he will work wholeheartedly for welfare of the people of Purvanchal and the State.
