Anantapur: Vykuntam Prabhakar Choudhury, ex-Municipal Chairman and Chairman of AWAY, a non-political forum to fight factionalism and promote good will among the people, has welcomed the nomination of Father Vincent Ferrer for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize by the government of Spain.
He said that the government of Spain nominating Father Vincent Ferrer for his services rendered to India's downtrodden and particularly the people of Anantapur district is a heartening news. He regretted that neither the Indian government nor the State government had given any award to the selfless Father who relentlessly served the people for four decades. He hoped that the Father's name will be shortlisted for the Award. Any Award to the Father will be an Award to the under-privileged and the downtrodden sections of the world, an AWAY press release stated.
He said that his organisation AWAY is making preparations for the installation of a bronze statue of the late Father Ferrer at the Collectorate junction in the city on August 9. He said that this act of recognition to the Father was his way of paying tributes to the selfless man who gave all his life for the cause of the poor.
