Security guards were always with me when I went to college for studies. So other students in the college used to watch with interest. At that time I would ask the security guards to wait under the building. Meanwhile other students used to come to talk to me. Pankaja Munde reminisced about becoming friends early saying that once we talked it was between us.
He also shared his experience of ragging during his college days. One day after entering the college, a group of students tried to rag Pankaja Munde. He told them that it was getting hot in the classroom and asked them to start the fan. Then asked to turn off the fan saying that more air is needed. The students present probably did not know the political background of Pankaja Munde at that time.
I realized that I was raging because I was new. But just then one of the students present started apologizing and everyone present got upset. Pankaja Munde told the story of how they started pleading that you are the home minister’s daughter, please don’t be angry with us.
On this occasion, he also reminisced about his memories with his father. Dad never came to drop me off at school or college. At that time, it was not common to call parents in schools. He once came to school for Pritam. He also recalled that Gopinath Munde was present at my children’s school during ‘Nana-Nani Day’. Twice a year, Baba used to take us for a walk. He recalled that he used to make time for his family.
When we look at our society, we still feel that we have not done anything for these children. He said that there are many more things to be done for the children of sugarcane workers. He expressed his feelings that they should get the right to education, if this right is easily available to them, their life will be better.
It was decided in 2014 that Munde Saheb will return to the state and I will go to the Lok Sabha Pankaja Munde
