Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation K.C. Venugopal has said that C.P. Sreedharan was a fearless litterateur who swam against the tide to establish a space for himself.

He was speaking at the website inaugural function in connection with the 80th birth anniversary of Sreedharan at Payyanur near here on Sunday. Mr. Sreedharan was an exemplary individual who had an opinion on every topic and stood by his opinion. He never hesitated to give up many recognitions that came his way by airing his views strongly. Though he had not been conferred with adequate recognition, it was imperative to introduce him to the new generation, Mr. Venugopal said.
