for Him, both the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections that year proved to be a crucial stepping stone. Under Sushma Swaraj’s guidance, Sriramulu, who is often called her adopted son, worked tirelessly to establish BJP’s hold in what was once a Congress bastion. The defeat never defeated the visionary in him. He was from the next moment on his path catering to the people leaving the defeat behind him. For him, People were everything not power.
