Detailed Bio of Mr S R Hiremath
Mr. S. R. Hiremath is the vanguard of India's second Independence Struggle for protection of natural resources. His pioneering crusade against corruption and depletion of natural resources has made him the icon of all right thinking persons in India and beyond.
Mr. Hiremath does not own any of the modern amenities, a living legend, who travels in a Second Class Railway compartment, carries his own luggage, books and documentation. He argued the case single handed in the Central Empowered Committee and also in various foras across India, which led to the liberation of thousands of acres of public resources.
