1 Minute Speech on Kamarajar In English

Good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a short speech on the topic “Kamarajar.”

Kumaraswami Kamaraj, popularly known as Kamarajar, is a renowned freedom fighter and political activist hailing from Tamil Nadu. He also served as the Chief Minister in the then Madras Presidency for a duration between 1954 to 1963. 

Titled Karumai Veerar Kamarajar, he was also a member of the Lok Sabha and Madras Legislative Assembly. Despite being uneducated having received no formal education, he was nicknamed the ‘Kingmaker of Politics’. He was highly influential across India, his power strong even with the Central Government. 

He was the one who brought free education to the poor and introduced the free Midday Meal Scheme. For this, he was awarded the Bharat Ratna posthumously in 1976. He also built several dams and irrigation canals across rivers including Mani Muthar, Aarani, Vaigai, and Krishnagiri.

Let us hail the man who said “Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education…”

Thank you.
