Actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi today demanded that the government confer Bharat Ratna award on late Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao.

“The economic reforms boldly initiated by him helped India march forward on the path of progress. The country has been able to compete with major countries since then,” the Praja Rajyam Party chief, told reporters here.

“We have to introspect whether we are giving the respect and recognition that he truly deserves. On behalf of our Praja Rajyam Party and myself, we feel ‘Bharat Ratna’ award should be given to him,” he said.

Chiranjeevi was speaking at the ‘PV Gyan Bhoomi’ here after paying floral tributes to the former Prime Minister on the occasion of his 89th birth anniversary.

Undoubtedly,PV Narasimharao played a significant role in India’s economic reforms back in 90’s and because of that, many people are benefitting today.But howcome the goverment has taken such a longtime to decide on this matter.Why did it not consider this earlier?Gurumurthy had written about PV Narasimha Rao and Sonia earlier – Rao: Punished after death,for defying her in life. Will the congress goverment listen to what Chiranjeevi is saying?Nowadays the awards are not given but they are bought for a price.
