Hyderabad: Noted poet and Telangana Legislative Council member Goreti Venakanna has won the Central Sahitya Akademi Award for 2021. Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao conveyed his greetings to Venkanna for getting the prestigious award.

KCR said Vallankitaalam, a compilation of Venkanna's poems, winning the Sahitya Akademi Award is worth hailing. He said the poetry of Goreti Venkanna which unveiled the day-to-day problems of daily life with a touch of social philosophy mirrored the universal man's pain.

Hailing Gorati Venkanna for beautifully unveiling the relationship between human life and nature and between man and other animals and birds, the Chief Minister said through his literature Gorati Venkanna had given the scent of Telangana's soil universal recognition.

KCR said Gorati Venkanna had played a key role during the separate Telangana statehood movement through his songs and literature. He said giving the Sahitya Akademi award to Venkanna's literature was like giving an award to the living philosophy of a common Telangana man.
