While addressing in end of the event Mr. Suleman G.

When we started social activities, feudal lords and bureaucrats came down on enmity and turned the dacoits against us but we always did our job without anyone noticing.
During the ceremony, Suleman G. Abro, who kept wiping tears from his eyes, said that the respect you have given me is a great honor for me and it encourages me to do more. He said that he had read the life stories of celebrities from all over the world, most of who came from extremely poor families like ours. Literary books have always trained and guided us.
"When we started this journey, the landlords, the dacoits, the intelligence people were following us," he said. I was given the task of kidnapping robbers, several attempts were made to kidnap me. I was convinced of my future achievements at that time, as Mahatma Gandhi said, when opposition began at home, in the neighborhood, in the city and in the region, and when these four stages of hardship were completed, the fifth stage came the recognition of services. Today's event encourages me to work harder. I am very grateful to all of you for that.
