Andhra Kesari remembered
GUNTUR: Rich tributes were paid to the freedom fighter and first Chief Minister of United Andhra టంగుటూరి ప్రకాశం పంతులు (Andhra Tanguturi Prakasam Panthulu) at function here on Thursday on the occasion of his 135th birth anniversary.
There was a lot to learn from the life of Prakasam Panthulu, who never showed any special favour to his relatives or known people and worked for the welfare of the people of the State as a whole.
He even sold his land, house and gold jewellery for the sake of people and such a sacrifice was hard to come these days, opined Brahmana Iykyatha Welfare Society secretary Siripurapu Venkata Sreedhar.
He had dared the British to fire at him and got freedom for the people,he lamented.
