Rubbing salt on beleaguered Congress party in state to whom the former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao belonged, arch rival Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao announced that in the forthcoming Legislature sessions, a resolution will be passed demanding ‘Bharat Ratna’ for the departed veteran politician.
At a review meeting held at Chief Minister’s official residence on PV’s birth centenary celebrations, it was also decided to name Hyderabad’s Necklace Road surrounding the Hussain Sagar lake as `PV Gnana Marg.’ The Chief Minister also announced the establishment of PV Memorial in Hyderabad.
“PV Narasimha Rao is a symbol of Telangana’s existence. We will discuss about the greatness of PV and his achievements in the Assembly. We have decided to have comprehensive debate on PV. We will pass a resolution urging conferring of Bharat Ratna on PV. We have decided to install portrait of PV in the Assembly. We will request the Centre to install a Portrait of PV in the Parliament.
We will ask the centre to rename the Central University of Hyderabad, which was established by PV in Hyderabad, as PV Narasimha Rao Central University. We will also pass a resolution in the Assembly in this regard,” CM K Chandrashekar Rao said.
“When land was the only resource for people to have their employment and earnings, PV as Chief Minister of united Andhra Pradesh then had implemented land reforms daringly. This resulted in having 93 percent small and medium level farmers in the Telangana state now,” the CM added.
