Warangal: Noted industrialist, educationist and philanthropist Podduturi Ganga Reddy (94) breathed his last in a private hospital in Hyderabad on Sunday morning. He had been suffering from several health issues for the last two years. With his demise, a pall of gloom has descended on Nayeem Nagar locality in Hanamkonda where he was living.

He was known for his sincerity and philanthropy besides his services as an educationist. He was the president of Ekashila Educational Society, which has been running reputed Kakatiya Institute of Technology and Science (KITS), Warangal, and Warangal Public School (WPS) in Warangal.

Ganga Reddy is popularly known as the founder of Madrasi Chakkari Beedi Factory Private Limited. He has maintained good rapport and cordial relationships with several elites of Warangal city. Though he was a native of the erstwhile Nizamabad district, Ganga Reddy had settled down in Warangal and earned a name as a successful businessman as he provided employment to hundreds of people.

Recalling his long association with Ganga Reddy, Secretary and Correspondent of the KITSW and MP (Rajya Sabha) Capt V Lakshmikantha Rao said that Ganga Reddy’s demise was a great personal loss to him. “Ganga Reddy was a gentleman who believed in values and ethics in business. He strove a lot for the Ekashila Educational Society’s development,” he added.

Lakshmikantha Rao, Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao, Government Chief Whip Dasyam Vinay Bhaskar, Husnabad MLA Vodithela Satish Kumar, MLC Baswaraju Saraiah, TRS leader Errabelli Pradeep Rao, KITSW Principal Prof K Ashoka Reddy and several others paid their respects to his mortal remains.
