Freedom Fighter

The state of Hyderabad was ruled by the Nizam authorities between 1724 and 1949. They used a private army known as Razakars (Hyderabad). From his teen years, Narayana mobilized people to face the Razakars and organized Dalams. He was arrested and imprisoned at Chanchalguda central prison for 4 months. He was just 19 years at that time.

Mukaramzha Durbar

In 1947, Prince Mukaramzha came to Devaruppal to pacify the agitation of people and side-step their fight. It was just a few days after Narayana was released from prison. He spoke to Mukaramzha about the plight of people under the Nizam rule and the Razakars (Hyderabad). The authorities subsequently issued an arrest warrant against Narayana under "Raja Droham". Under the directive of the Communist Party of India, Narayana went underground and began mobilizing people as Dalams. He worked as Area Dalam Commander, Zonal Commander and Central Commander.

Refusal to ask for Kshamabhiksha (Amnesty)

Narayana served two and half years in prison for his activities. He also worked 5 years underground against the authorities. Before police action, a court under Nizam issued the death penalty against Narayana. After police action, Narayana refused to ask for kshamabhiksha (amnesty). The Supreme Court of India later dismissed the charges against Narayana.
