On Saturday, former Chittoor MP N Sivaprasad passed away. He was suffering from kidney ailment for over a week and had been hospitalised at Apollo Hospital in Chennai. Most remembered this Telugu Desam MP for the various get-ups he adorned during the debates on special category status for Andhra Pradesh in Parliament. From Lord Krishna to MGR, from NTR to Chattrapati Shivaji, this actor-cum-politician knew how to grab attention of fellow politicians and the media.
For Chandrababu Naidu, it was a personal loss. Not of a fellow party member but of his school mate as well. Both hailed from Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.
Tweeting a group photograph from school time (below), Naidu mentioned that Sivaprasad and he studied together from class 6 to 10. While Sivaprasad is seated in the front row, Naidu is the third student standing in the third row.
