Hyderabad: Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy said here on Sunday that he will write a letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker, seeking statues of former President of India Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy and former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao in Parliament.

The Chief Minister said this while participating in the Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy centenary birthday celebrations organised by the state government’s cultural department here at Ravindra Bharati auditorium. He also announced that the Andhra Pradesh State Revenue Academy, which the state government will start very soon, will be named after Sanjeeva Reddy.

The Chief Minister said the Arts collage at Anantapur will be named as Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy Arts college. He promised funds for the all round development of Illoru village in Anantapur district, the native place of Sanjeeva Reddy and said the late President’s life was a lesson for all political leaders.

Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan said that he was fortunate to study at Adyar School in Tamil Nadu, where Sanjeeva Reddy had also studied. He said that the former President was born in a farmer’s family, but went on to hold the highest position in the country as President of India.

Union minister Killi Kruparani released a special postal cover in the memory of Sanjeeva Reddy. Earlier, the revenue minister and chairman of the Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy’s centenary birthday celebrations committee welcomed the gathering and said that the celebrations will go on till November 1, with the concluding function to be held at the Sanjeeva Reddy stadium at Anantapur.
The CM invited President Pranab Mukherjee to participate in the concluding function, he said.
