Describing former BJP legislator and a popular social figure Mohan Mate as a selfless and dedicated worker, his friends cutting across party lines felicitated him on his 50th birthday in a grand function organised at sprawling Suresh Bhat hall on Thursday evening.

Minister of State for Power and veteran BJP leader Madan Yerawar described Mate as a true friend who always helped people going beyond party politics and without any selfish motive. In politics some people are liked by elite while some are extremely popular among masses. Mate is a rare combination of both and is equally loved by classes as well as masses, Yerawar stated while extending his best wishes for bright political future to former South Nagpur legislator.

Mayor Nanda Jichkar, MLC Girish Vyas, Deputy Mayor Deepraj Pardikar, ex-minister Dr Anees Ahmed, Dayashankar Tiwari, Sanjay Bhende, Sanjay Bangale, ex-MLC Ashok Mankar, Dr Upendra Kothekar, Atul Londhe, Abha Pande, Dinanath Padole, Prashant Pawar, Shekhar Sawarbandhe, Kiran Pandav, Dr Baban Taiwade, Sanjay Khule, Bijju Pande and many prominent people from all walks of life were present to greet him. Mayor Nanda Jichkar described Mohan Mate as true grass root worker who is immensely loved by his supporters. He is always surrounded by common masses and has shown due aggression to redress their grievances, Jichkar stated in her presidential speech.

Overwhelmed by this grand felicitation accorded by his friends, Mohan Mate expressed his deep gratitude towards all his true friends who stood by him irrespective of political differences. The journey from being a simple party worker of BJP to corporator and popular legislator was possible only because of love and affection of my true friends and party workers, Mate stated.

A grand musical was also organised on this occasion in which Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champ winner Anjali Gaikwad and her equally talented sister Nandini enthralled the audience. The talented artists were felicitated at the hands of Mate. Shubhangi Rayulu conducted the proceedings.
