Khammam: Khaki shirts were distributed free of cost to autorickshaw drivers at Khammam railway station here on Thursday in memory of Khammam MP Nama Nageswara Rao’s father Nama Muthaiah and mother Varalakshmi.
The shirts were distributed to nearly 100 auto drivers by the district Rythu Bandhu Samithi convener Nallamala Venkateshwar Rao and TRS leader Maddineni Baby Swarna Kumari under the aegis of Nama Muthaiah Trust.
