Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday unveiled a 30ft tall bronze statue of revolutionary fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju as part of his 125th birthday celebrations at Pedda Amiram village near Bhimavaram in West Godavari district.

On that occasion, Mr. Modi said that Sitarama Raju, popularly known as “Manyam Veerudu” in those parts of the state, had been an inspiration to the whole nation.

He said he was happy to walk on the sacred ground where Sitarama Raju had fought many valiant battles against the British and had given his life at a young age of around 27.

While praising some of the descendants of Sitarama Raju and Bodi Dora, the grandson of Mallu Dora who was a close disciple of Sitarama Raju, Mr. Modi said that brave men like Sitarama Raju and Birsa Munda had been instrumental in independence and that the country was indebted to them.

Furthermore, he said that all the places where Sitarama Raju lived and participated in the freedom struggle would be developed as tourist sites.

Governor Biswa Bhusan Harichandan, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Union Tourism and Culture Minister G. Kishan Reddy and actor K. Chiranjeevi were among those present.
