A great man who ruled the country in troubled times.Mr P V Narasimha Rao was the first Prime Minister of India from South India. He was the only Telugu Prime Minister so far. He is one of the greatest politicians produced by this country who believed that the nation is more important than the political system. He served as the 9th Prime Minister of India from 1991 to 1996. When he became the Prime Minister the country was in financial troubles. He had no absolute majority in the parliament. But he ruled the country in those troubled times successfully and changed the direction of the country. The concept of globalisation has been initiated by him.PVNR is referred to as the father of reforms.
Today is his 100th birthday. The government of Telangana observed last year as the centenary year of this man. Today his statue was unveiled by the Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan. On this day I salute this great leader who initiated the reforms.
