Andhra Kesari Tanguturi Prakasham (1872-1957) was one of the great freedom –fighters of our country. He played a notable part in the struggle for independence right from Gandhiji’s time in 1920’s, in non-cooperation, constructive programme, Swadeshi, Salt Satyagraha, Individual Satyagraha and Quit India Movements. His contribution to the success of the Congress in the elections from that time onward in Andhra Desa was immense with the result that he became the Revenue Minister in the First congress Government in 1937 under Rajaji’s premiership in Madras Province.
Later in 1946-47, he adorned the position of Premier (Chief Minister) of the same Province. He was again the chosen leader to preside over the Andhra State which came into being in October 1953 at Kurnool, following the death of Potti Sreeramulu (1901-52)
Position or no position, Prakasam was always his confident self, fearing none but fighting for the cause he championed sincerely. It was not for nothing he was called the Andhra Kesari. He was where people were, whatever the troubles or challenges, political, communal or any other.
