Message by Congress President Smt. Sonia Gandhi
The birth centenary of Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao is an occasion for us to recall and pay tribute to a most scholarly and erudite personality. After a long career in state and national politics, he became Prime Minister of India at a time of grave economic crisis. Through his bold leadership, our country was able to overcome many challenges successfully. The Union Budget of July 24, 1991, had paved the way for the economic transformation of our country. Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao’s tenure was also marked by a number of political, social and foreign policy achievements that have endured. Above all he was a dedicated Congressman who served the party devotedly in various capacities.
I congratulate the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee for having organized these year-long celebrations. Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao was a very respected national and international figure. The Congress party takes pride in his many accomplishments and contributions.
