With an eye on increasing popularity among minority community, BJP’s Jamalpur-Khadia MLA Bhushan Bhatt held a series of events in various wards here on Saturday to mark the fourth death anniversary of his father – the late Assembly Speaker and minister Ashok Bhatt – which also coincided with the junior Bhatt’s birthday.
At one such function in Chhipa Community Hall, he told the audience, mostly students, that what his generation did not see, they had seen it. Giving an example he said that people of his generation did not know much of mobile phone function which even children had mastered now.
He said that no one had imagined that time would travel so fast and no one could imagine what would happen even in a week , remembering the Managalyaan achievement this week.
Bhatt said students could no more be contented with becoming a driver or a mechanic but get higher education and aim high like Narendra Modi who rose from a tea vendor to the prime Minister. “Even my father began his career as a sweeper and became the Assembly Speaker. I was also a small man…” he said.
The event was held at a time when saffron outfits are busy spreading hatred against the minority community in the name of love jihad. AMC Opposition Leader and Khadia councillor Mayur Dave with his colleague Niki Modi were also present. Historian Rizwan Qadri said that buildings and mansions did not make a heritage, living humans and their history made real heritage.
