PWG founder member Satyamurthy passes away

Vijayawada, April 17 : K G Satyamurthy, one of the founders of People's War Group (PWG) passed away on Tuesday. He was 84.

According to family sources, K G Satyamurthy died of illness at Kandulapadu of G Kondur mandal in Krishna district. He is survived by two sons and two daughters.

Satyamurthy, a Dalit Naxalite leader and a literary icon, wrote revolutionary poetry under the pen name of Shiv Sagar.

Born in Gannavaram in Krishna district, Satyamurthy started his career as an English teacher at Fatima School in Warangal, where the legendary Kondapalli Seetharamiah was teaching Hindi. Soon they became friends. Kondapalli shared his disillusionment with the mainstream Marxist parties.

Along with Kondapalli Seetharamiah, he founded the People's War Group to translate their ideas into action in 1980. Satyamurthy visited villages, organised squads and wrote most enduring revolutionary poetry under the pseudonym Shiv Sagar.

Virasam leader Varavara Rao later published all of Shiv Sagar's poetry and books in the form of a magazine.

Satyamurthy steadily grew in the party and at one point the government has announced a Rs 25,000 reward on his head. He was arrested in 1974 by the police.

He focused all his energy in his last years talking about the need to root out the caste factor in Indian society before any revolution could change the power equations in our society.
