Professor G Haragopal released three volumes of Devi Priya’s collection of poems “Running Commentary” at a function here on Wednesday. Film director Dasari Narayana Rao released the e-Books, which are available for sale on

Speaking on the occasion, Dasari Narayana Rao said though Devi Priya made critical comments against politicians, including NT Rama Rao, they used to enjoy it and no one raised any objection. “Now-a-days the satires on TV channels are causing pain to individuals,” Dasari felt.
