In 1934 he toured Europe as a member of the Empire Parliamentary Association. On his return he was elected President of the District Board Chittoor in 1936.

His sympathy for the poor is almost a weakness with him. In spite of his various activities he always finds time to attend to the suffering and the needy, and always has a word of cheer for all who come in contact with him. His genial smile is his greatest asset.

He contested the elections on the Congress ticket and represents Chittoor in the Madras Legislative Assembly.
