  • He was an Indian revolutionary who waged an armed campaign against the British colonial rule in India.

  • Born in present-day Andhra Pradesh.

  • He was involved in opposing the British in response to the 1882 Madras Forest Act that effectively restricted the free movement of adivasis in their forest habitats and prevented them from practicing their traditional form of agriculture called 'podu', which threatened their very way of life.

  • Rise in discontent towards the British colonial rule in the backdrop of the Non-cooperation movement (1920-1922) led to the Rampa rebellion (1922-1924) in which Alluri Sitarama Raju played the major role as its leader.

  • Mustering combined forces of tribals and other sympathizers to the cause, he engaged in guerilla campaigns against the British forces across the border regions of present-day Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. 

  • He was given the title "Manyam Veerudu" (transl. Hero of the Jungle) by the local people for his heroic exploits.

  • As the leader of the Manyam rebellion or the Rampa Rebellion of 1922, Alluri Sitarama Raju led his forces against the British colonial rulers with an aim of expelling them from the Eastern Ghats region in the erstwhile Madras Presidency.

  • During the rebellion he led numerous raids on the imperial police stations to acquire firearms for his under-equipped forces.
