M. ANANTHASAYANAM AYYANGAR

M. ANANTHASAYANAM AYYANGAR

Veteran freedom fighter, renowned parliamentarian and Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Madabhooshi Ananthasayanam Ayyangar was a lawyer by profession and a nationalist in temperament.  As an ardent follower of Mahatma Gandhi's constructive programme, he advocated the uplift of the deprived sections of the society, particularly temple entry and the abolition of untouchability.  He was elected to the Central Legislative Assembly in 1934.  He was the Deputy Speaker of the Constituent Assembly (Legislative), Provisional Parliament and the First Lok Sabha.  On Speaker Mavalankar's demise, Ayyangar was elected the Speaker and was re-elected to the office during the Second Lok Sabha too.

The portrait, painted by Vijay Mohan, was unveiled by the then President of India, Shri R. Venkataraman on 9 December 1991.
