G Kishan Reddy, the Minister of State for Home Affairs, has criticized Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, saying that the latter has not paid tributes to former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao. The late PV’s birth centenary celebrations are on.
“Sri PVNR was a lifelong Congressman, yet appalling to see how one dynasty tramples over his legacy. Such political untouchability is distasteful & unfortunate,” Reddy said in his tweet.
There is a view that the Congress party hasn’t given PVNR his due despite him being the architect of liberalization. Social media is agog with several BJP supporters tearing into the Nehru-Gandhi family for not celebrating the leader’s contributions.
