the posts were held by British nationals. He also served as leader of the
Indian National Congress, Premier of the Madras Presidency, Governor of West
Bengal, Minister for Home Affairs of the Indian Union and Chief Minister of

peace and disarmament. During his lifetime, he also acquired the nickname
'Mango of Krishnagiri'.
