Atlanta in US will install a statue of former Indian Prime Minister late PV Narasimha Rao to mark his birth centenary celebrations.
Former Indian Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao’s statue will be installed in Atlanta in November.
Several Indian associations and Telugu organisations are working together to finish the installation. The representatives of these organisations recently visited the proposed site.
In a statement, TRS NRI wing coordinator Mahesh Bigala said the statue would be installed as part of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s advice to install the statues of PV in five countries across the world.
“We will consult TRS Parliamentary Party leader and PV Centenary Celebrations Committee chairman K Keshava Rao as well as the family members for their advice on the statue installation,” said Mr Bigala.
The Indian organisations are hoping to host the family members of PV Narsimha in Atlanta to unveil the statue.
PV Narsimha Rao was the 9th Prime Minister of India. He served in the office from 1991 to 1996. Born on 28 June 1921 in Laknepalli Village, Warangal, Mr Rao is known to shape India’s economic future along with Dr Manmohan Singh, his Finance Minister.
