Prof. Dr. Sanjay B. Chordiya, Founder President & Chairman, Suryadatta Education Foundation feels that, “Spreading awareness against the menace of terrorism has become vital in today’s context. Suryadatta is always on Forefront of giving such food for thought to young managers pursuing education at Suryadatta. This time also, Suryadatta has invited one such luminary who is a Champion of upholding justice with great resolve and will. During the opening speech, Dr. Chordiya said that today shri Bittaji will share his success stories and his thoughts on the topic of movement against terrorism amongst students & faculty members.”
Hon’ble Shri M.S. Bitta, Chairman, All-India Anti Terrorist Front is a true source of inspiration. Bullets and bombs do not scare him, having survived two near fatal attempts on his life by terrorists. Only a soul of his resoluteness who has earned the name “Zinda Shaheed” could withstand such a tragic onslaught.
The program started by Hon’ble Shri M.S. Bitta showering rose petals on the statue of
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and paying his tribute to the great leader.
In his inspiring address at Suryadatta Hon’ble Shri M.S. Bitta said, “When terrorists attack places like Mumbai or Pune, they know that attack on these cities can paralyse whole nation. Pune is the education hub while Mumbai is financial backbone of our country. People come to these cities from all over the country for education and for earning their bread and butter. Hence terror attack on these cities is an attack on whole nation”
He praised the young generation by saying that, “Youngsters today are definitely modern. They may prefer modern clothes or western music but that does not mean that they have forgotten rich heritage of their country. They have adapted the changes with the time but also respect their nation at the same time.”
He also commented on the corrupt system in our country and how it is ruining the great sacrifice of our great freedom fighters. Mr Bitta feels that lack of policy makers will is the major obstacle in fight against the terrorism. He praised various leaders of our country such as Balasaheb Thackeray, Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar for the remarkable work in their respective states.
Shri Bitta was overwhelmed by the honour conferred upon him by Suryadatta. He said, “Suryadatta is the only institute I have seen which is taking note of unsung heroes of the country. Everywhere I see people invite giant leaders for various functions but here at Suryadatta ‘the Shaheeds’ and their family is being honoured. I congratulate Suryadatta for their great work and request them to keep it up.”
Mr Bitta answered to the question of Suryadatta student with lot of enthusiasm in an interactive Question and Answer session.
