In the backward area like Gondia, Manoharbhai Patel, who could not get education himself, created education facilities and displayed his true vision. He laid the foundation of education in the area. Through Gondia Education Society he strived to provide quality education and played very important role, thus praised President of India, Pranav Mukherjee.
He was speaking at the felicitation programme of meritorious students on the occasion of 108thanniversary of Manoharbhai Patel.

Pranav Mukherjee said on the occasion that education is not just required for removal non employment but it leads to one becoming good citizen. He said it is really praiseworthy that in Gondia Education Society’s 60 highschools and colleges more than 1 lakh 10 thousand students are getting quality education. After getting education these students should strive for the development of this area.
If one wants success in life, education has no alternative, President said.
Speaking on the occasion, Union Agriculture minister, Sharad Pawar said, Gondia Education Society makes elaborate efforts for imparting quality education to its students. He also said that in coming 3-4 years, Bhandara-Gondia districts will make significant progress in agricultural field. Gosikhurd, Bawanthadi projects will make a revolution in agriculture here he claimed.
