Hyderabad | 16th January 2021
Famed physician Dr Ramaka Lakshmana Murthy breathed his last at his Ram Nagar residence in Warangal's Hanamkonda constituency on Thursday night.

The 83-year-old spent his childhood in Indurthy village, and then went on to obtain an MD to become a general physician from Osmania University.

His first job was that of a government doctor at the Karimnagar Civil Hospital. After that, he joined the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Warangal in 1977 where he served his patients selflessly for two decades.

Murthy then took voluntary retirement, and started his medical services in Ram Nagar. It was this during this stint that he earned the moniker of ‘the people's doctor' for his dedication to the ailing.

The veteran medic is survived by his wife Anantha Lakshmi, sons Dr Ramaka Srinivas and Ramaka Shashidhar, and daughters Gangu Vani and Lakhsmi.

His last rites were performed at Padmakshi Gutta in Hanamkonda on Friday. A number of eminent members of the Indian Medical Association's Warangal chapter and former Hanamkonda MLA Dharma Rao Marthineni also attended the function.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today expressed his deep condolences over the death of the noted doctor, and said that Murthy had dedicated his entire life to provide medical treatment to the poor.

"Dr Murthy has gained a permanent place in the hearts of people. He will be remembered for generations to come as a selfless medical practitioner who dedicated his life to the service of others," the CM said.

He also conveyed his condolences to members of the bereaved family.
