Founder chairman Late Pt. Sukhpal Pandey:
The life and achievement of Shri Sukhpal Pandey, the founder secretary of College of pharmacy, Babhnan (Gonda) have been nothing less than a phenomenon. Born on March 4, 1929 in an ordinary Brahmin family of Tehsil Harriya in Basti district, Shri Pandey rose to eminence when he was first elected for the legislative assembly of U. P. in 1969. Ever since then he enjoyed the image of a popular leader, who was always eager to fight for the cause of social justice. During his last tenure as M. L. A., he was made State Minister for Transport, in which capacity he rendered his services in his own characteristic style. Though he could not get much education himself, he got remarkable success in providing great educational facilities to the boys and girls residing around Babhnan. In fact, his services in this particular field of education are so valuable that people regard him as the second Malviya of this region. Today he is no more with us but his dauntless temper, his fighting and invincible spirit and his passion for the educational betterment of society continue to inspire and guide us.
