He has been planning passage and navigating ships and vessels carrying various goods to different countries for two decades.


“I ventured into an unconventional field in 2003 as I did not want to depend on my father, paving the way to activists of the party who were dedicated and committed for his phenomenal success from the Bellampalli segment. I felt it was unfair to exploit my father’s political legacy, affecting the growth of the activists. I am content with my decision and this profession,” Praveen told ‘Telangana Today.’
