The Samaikyandhra Vidyarthi Joint Action Committee on Thursday honoured elite people in the town with “Telugu Basha, Ugadi Pratibha Puraskar” for their valuable contributions to the cause of keeping the state united.

People from different walks of life vowed to contribute their might to ensure that the first linguistic state formed after the supreme life sacrifice by Potti Sriramulu remained united for ever.

The protagonists of Samakyandhra wished that the new year would lead to peace and prosperity for all Telugu people. They celebrated the occasion by distributing the famous ‘Ugadi Pachadi'.
