The function commenced with Tilawate Quran by Moulana Zainul Abideen Nakhwa followed by Naat presentation by Moulana Arshad Deshmukh. When President Rafiq Rahiman Dalwai stood for giving his felicitation speech all Kokni brothers gave him big round of applause. In the beginning of his presidential speech he respectfully remembered those Kokani brothers who were with us previous year and passed away during this year. He along with all prayed for their maghferah. He continued his speech by emphasizing on importance of education and explained the aim of KCR to extend maximum financial support to needy Kokni students who wish to pursue their education. He further explained about the Educational Adoption Scheme (EASE) under which KCR adopted 158 Kokni students last year by paying their entire academic year fee against which the amount received under this scheme from Kokni brothers was for 68 students. This year the adoption of students by Kokni brothers reached to nearly 100. As more and more brothers are joining KCR and showing notable enthusiasm by adopting students. President said if same trend continues and if Allah Wishes then we will have no hesitation in adopting double number of students this year. On this every attendee clapped their hands in support.
