NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Sunday felicitated Poona Bishop Rt Rev Thomas Dabre.

Pawar recalled the time during the Latur earthquake. “One lakh houses were damaged. There were several who came to comfort and provide solace to the earthquake affected and among those who came forward immediately were members from all communities including the Christian community,” Pawar said. He also added that during his travels to the northeast, he has witnessed the important role played by the church.
