VIJAYAWADA: “Everyone must take cognizance of the constitutionally listed fundamental duties to be performed as citizens of this country,” said Central Vigilance Commissioner KV Chowdary after  receiving  Visishta Puraskaram by Ramineni Foundation on Thursday. “We fight for our fundamental rights by even going to the Supreme Court, but we do not talk about fundamental duties,” he said.    

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and Chief Minister of Goa Manohar Parrikar attended the event and felicitated the awardees. Along with Visishta Puraskaram, Visesha Puraskaram awards were presented to Prof Geeta K Vemuganti, Dean of School of Medical Sciences, University of Hyderabad; R Narayana Murthy, popular Telugu cinema artiste, director and producer and  R Nageswara Rao, popular Telugu theatre artiste.

Naidu congratulated the awardees and the Ramineni Foundation for holding such an event and contributing towards society. He also said that earning money is not important but giving it back to society is important. “Indian society has a strong family system which cannot be ignored. Everyone must love nature and feel responsible towards environment,” he added.

Manohar Parrikar said that he had travelled from one coast to another to realise the similarities between AP and Goa - both States have produced talent for the country across sectors. “Another similarity is the love for rice, fish curry and coconuts. Except some cultural and political differences, there are a lot of similarities between the two States,” he said.
