CBD BE­LA­PUR: Ujjwal Nikam, who has been the pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor in sev­eral high pro­file cases in­clud­ing 1993 bomb blasts and 26/11 Mum­bai ter­ror at­tack, was in the city re­cently to at­tend the seven- day San­man fes­ti­val or­gan­ised by the San­man Pratisthan in Airoli.

“Ci­ti­zens gen­er­ally ap­proach the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tions with a view to re­solve civic is­sues that they come across. Hence, the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives es­pe­cially cor­po­ra­tors need to be ef­fi­cient to solve the prob­lems faced by denizens at the grass­roots level,” said Nikam.

Talk­ing about to­day’s youth, Nikam said, “Our ed­u­ca­tion sys- tem only makes peo­ple ed­u­cated. The young gen­er­a­tion needs to be­come cul­tured, broad-minded and fo­cus on their ca­reer so that they do not get in­volved in crimes.” He asked par­ents to en­cour­age their young wards to con­cen­trate on their ca­reers in­stead of wast­ing time in watch­ing TV se­ri­als and films.

At the end of the pro­gramme, Nikam was hon­oured with the San­man Pratisthan’s me­mento by deputy mayor Ashok Gawade.
