Telangana IT minister Mr KT Rama Rao paid rich tributes to late poet Mr Alisetty Prabhakar on his both death and birth anniversary today.
Hailing him as a great poet who won the hearts of Telangana people, he said Mr Prabhakar brought recognition to Telangana literature with his simple and creative short poems. Though by vocation he took to photography to sustain his family, his first love was poetry. Despite poverty and chronic illness he refused to sell his literature to films. He remained uncompromising till death and a pure people’s poet.
Mr KTR in his Twitter message hailed the poet as great and the pride of Telangana.
