Tribute to our legendary leader... Late Shri. K Ramamurthi (1914-1995)

" Shri. K Ramamurthi, our legendary leader, left us on 5th October, 1995. The vaccum created by his demise is surging upon us. Let us march towards the path shown by him for the emancipation of our brethren Gramin Dak Sevaks to achieve their legitimate rights. K R was leading us courageously by fighting against all injustices. The best tribute we can give on his memory is to make a pledge that we will emulate his teachings for the welfare of Postal employees. Let us pay respectful homage to our legendary leader."
