Ex-PM Narasimha Rao a legend: Venkaiah Naidu
Urban development and housing minister Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday paid rich tributes to former prime minister the late PV Narasimha Rao on the occasion of his 93rd birth anniversary. ‘Pamulaparthi Venkata Narasimha Rao was a distinguished legend in the public life of our county for several decades. One of the most notable of his contributions being the economic reforms (he introduced) in early 1990s as PM,’ Naidu said as he recalled the life and contributions of the late leader. ‘He (Rao) was the first Congress PM of the country from outside Nehru family to have completed five years in office,’ a statement quoted Naidu as saying.

Describing the former PM as an ‘erudite scholar and embodiment of vision’, Naidu said he had made ‘path-breaking contributions as minister and chief minister of the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh (and also) as Union minister and prime minister during his long stint in public life.’
