Today is the 93rd birth anniversary of the great political legend P.V. Narasimha Rao who served to the country as Prime Minister during the difficult days of our country. His economic Reforms put the country in front seat and now it has riped to the stage to compete with countries like USA. Germany. Japan and others. It is our duty to pay tributes to this great legend on his birth anniversary with folded hands.
Without him or if he was not the Prime Minister of the country in those hard days when India
dragged into insolvency state, no Indian or any American or European could say India can compete with the strong economically strong based countries of North America and Europe.
The economic transformation of the country has been started after he assumed the office of Prime Minister and he used his wisdom to survive the country using the services of Dr. Manmohan Singh
who later became the Prime Minister for a decade.
Things were not good when PV Narasimha Rao was taken the charge of this country and he also had not enough numbers in Parliament to take bold globalization steps but his vision had convinced opposition parties to go ahead with great decisions to repair the economic situation of this country.
Averting the economic crisis in the year 1991, he then opened the doors for foreign investments in many fields. Later Mr. Manmohan Singh as Finance Minister implemented them successfully.Though he said to be ?father of the strong economical India?, did not consider for the country?s biggest civilian award ?Bharat Ratna?. The UPA Government has not even remembered him on his death and birth days. Every late Prime Minister had their memorials or Ghats in the Capital but unfortunate PV could not get his due importance.
The AICCC President Smt Sonia Gandhi has never praised him for his great achievements which helped the country to get this excellent stage. Reasons not known his great disciple Mr. Manmohan Singh also paid tributes to PV Narasimha Rao on his death and birth anniversaries during his PM period only in heart without expressing openly.
