    Take this, Congress: NDA govt plans a memorial for former PM Narasimha Rao | The Indian Express



    I read somewhere in this forum that ABV himself acknowledged the great contribution of Rao bringing India out of economical collapse and also, that Pokhran test when conducted during ABV's time, was given greenlight by Rao himself. I can't find the article or the thread (too lazy), but it needs to be made clear he is the man who made the hard choices (not Manmohan who took all the credit later) when it was required. He was made a scapegoat for the Gandhi-family interest as as long as he was there, sonia's dreams would have been a dream only. He never received his due respect, great move by Naidu.

    We know abt cong.

    But so pathetic is the level bjp fallen to honour cong leaders.

    It means bjp didn't find its leaders that great compared cong.

    Ps- morons instead using its chance to put forth their ideology forward. Pandering to minorities like cong!

    Well, if a man is indeed worthy of honor, he should be honored regardless of the color, creed or in this case party.

    If you learnt the history of PV Narsimha Rao and Congress, you would be surprised what a masterstroke it indeed is from the part of NDA.

    Now when the topic of Rao memorial would come out, every one who cares would want to know about him and find out what the Congoons actually did with such a great man. It would rub on the fact that Rao led a Congress that was miles apart from the current one. This memorial will destroy the credibility of Congress rather than solidify it.

    Great move. I say NDA should make PVNR bigger than Rajiv Gandhi or Nehru. Just declare a PVNR Nationalism Day on June 28.

    On the one hand Congress people would get impetus to eject the SoGa and RaGa out and those who are not Hindutva vadis may get some chance in the real politic of the country.

    On the other hand we will get a bunch of new people to idolize - Sardar, Malviya, LBS, PVNR, Atal, completely bypassing the old cabal and its church. The church weakens the clergy of Congress weakens.

    PVNR was a great politician. Running a minority govt. with snakes in his own party out to bite him at every turn, he managed to complete the crucial 5 years by simply making and keeping the things at a exactly the point where none of his detractors could dare to take on the onerous responsibility of running a national government. Runninig the Government of India during those days was like drinking from a poisoned chalice and PVNR came prepared to digest that poison unlike his detractors.

    Yes it is true ABV has acknowledged that while going out of office PVNR had given him a note saying things were ready for the Nuke tests and that we should go ahead and conduct our tests. PVNR was trying to do it in around 95, around the time the French and Chinese were conducting their last ones, but was pre-empted by US snooping.

    While it may appear that it is to spite the Congress, but one should look at it in a broader and nationalist sense.

    As I have said earlier quite a few times, Mr Narasimha Rao was the architect of the modern resurgent India. It is his vision that released India from the stifling bureaucratic stranglehold and red tapism that the socialist dream of Nehru heralded in along with Mrs Gandhi's licence Raj. Though I will hasten to add that both Nehru and Mrs Gandhi had their own contributions made to India.

    Manmohan Singh was but a technocrat working in the overall vision of Narashimha Rao. MMS is given all the credit, just to do down Narashimha Rao's yeoman and path breaking contribution since the Gandhi family was inimical to him.

    Narashimha Rao not only freed India from its socialist bureaucratic hold, but also gave a new meaning to strategic vision. He opened up India to Israel, which was a powerhouse in itself, and at the same time kept the Arabs in good humour. That apart, he was the first PM who opened up India to the East and embarked on a Pan Asian vision that has held India in fine fettle on which we are today cashing on.

    A memorial to Mr Rao is most befitting an honour that has been long denied to him.

    ^

    That is only a coincidence from the POV of Hindutva side and an accusation made by Secularists secularists side.

    One side does not consider it important, whether PVNR was supportive/repressive/indifferent towards the demolition. Other side is yet to prove anything and establish a help full conspiracy.

    The groundswell for RJB was simply too much for anything to come in the way. Even Zina and Suanar-wardy could not have stopped the demolition, which in any case was more a wish of the masses than a well directed action by Sanghis. I do agree that Sanghis were very supportive of the idea of demolition and some from the Sangh may even have gone beyond what the top leadership may have had wanted. People generally fail to properly appreciate the magnitude & direction of a Hindus relationship with his avatars and devtas. Esp. the people who live their lives in the ceaseless cacophony delivered on the doorsteps by the Main Stream Media. Even Sanghis themselves cannot fathom this connect and hence the Sangh leaders remain ever defensive about instigating anything beyond what they can properly direct.

    According to Natwar Singh, "Unlike Nehru his knowledge of Sanskrit was profound. Nehru had a temper, PV a temperament. His roots were deep in the spiritual and religious soil of India. He did not need to Discover India".

    Rao was also referred to as Chanakya for his ability to steer tough economic and political legislation through the parliament at a time when he headed a minority government.

    The same points have long been made by Subramanian Swamy.

    I have always said that PVNR was India's best PM, followed by Vajpayee. The conditions in which PVNR had to work were really bad - India was in really poor shape at that time. Yet, he managed to do a lot of crucial things and it is to him that we owe our prosperity and stability today.

    Better late than never......P V Narsimha Rao needs to be recognized as the architect of open economy in India and not that lackey Manmohan Singh of Con-Party's gandhi family!
