The awards or honours received by Prof Anil Sole include a medal given by Gondwana University, Gadchiroli on the occasion of the fifth anniversary, a medal of honour at the Martyrs’ Memorial Day program organized by MLA Bunty Bhagdia, a memento of Bharat Mata’s photograph given by Lokmanya Sanskrutik Krida Mandal, Reshimbagh, Prerna Punj Samman of Vidarbha Hindi Sahitya Sangh, a memento with a photograph of RSS Sarsanghchalak Golvalkar Guruji. All these awards were also lying in scraps on the footpath of Ramdaspeth.

Sole’s Personal Assistant Vijay Fadnavis and his office got the information that the awards were in the scrap shop. As soon as he got the information, he immediately rushed to the scrap dealer at Ramdaspeth. He asked the scrap dealer to return all awards to him. Vijay Fadnavis reportedly said that Sole’s office was being shifted at that time. So these awards were packed in a sack. Employees were told to sell the other junk. But they must have thought it was junk and brought the award sacks at the scrap dealer, he clarified.
