Dr Ramana said that he was proud to associate with the children of great warriors like Adapa Radhakrishna Murthy. He explained that Murthy met Mahatma Gandhi during the latter’s visit to Tenali in his student days and joined the freedom movement. Subsequently, he quit the government job and participated in the Quit India movement following his association with another great freedom fighter Potti Sriramulu. “Students are setting more focus on their careers. There is nothing wrong in dreaming and designing their careers as per their choice. However, they should not forget the sacrifices made by the freedom fighters as they will inspire you to achieve your goals,” suggested Dr Ramana. Senior official of Union home ministry and grandson of Adapa Radhakrishna Murthy, ABV Sai Srinivas was also present.
