She said we, children, used to help our freedom fighters secretly by supplying food and water. At the age of thirteen, Ms.Vidya passed all the entry level exams in Gandhiji’s Sevagram for taking training in social labs – service to society and got trained. From then onwards, she started her carrier as a village level elected representative worked in various capacities and finally as a Member of Parliament twice from Vijayawada constancy.

            She suggested students to contribute their might to the society. She opined “Elected representatives are the representatives of people but not parties”. At present there are no social practical labs to students to get awareness on social activities. Youth should have social outlook and come with zeal to work for society. During vacation students should come forward to help improve sanitation works in their respective villages by organizing events like Swatcha Bharath, Energy from waste etc.
