VIJAYAWADA: NTR district collector S Dilli Rao asked people to draw inspiration from freedom fighters to protect the integrity and sovereignty of the country. The collector inaugurated a photo exhibition jointly organised by the officials of I&PR and Public Transport Department (PTD) at Pandit Nehru Bus Station here on Tuesday.
