Close associate of former Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao and former minister J Chokka Rao, Mr. Karwa was also closely associated with Reserve Bank of India deputy governor V. Leeladhar and other senior bank officials of various ranks of Union Bank of India. He was also associated with the Karimnagar Chamber of Commerce for several decades and worked for the development of business and trade in the district.

Following the spread of news of death of Mr Kesarimal Karwa, people from all sections of society made a beeline to console the bereaved family members at busy Tower Circle here.

Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar spoke to the External Affairs Ministry in New Delhi for providing necessary assistance to the family of Mr. Karwa in Dubai to send his body to India and later to Karimnagar.
