Prof M D Nalapat remembers P V Narasimha Rao one of India’s greatest ever PMs

From the first time he met him in 1973 to the last interview that he did of Sri P V Narasimha Rao in 2004, Prof. M D Nalapat shares his experience of this quiet achiever. Here is the article by Prof. Nalapat on Narasimha Rao's final humiliation -


  1. I was looking forward to some serious, well-informed discussion on the topic. Instead, I felt that I ended up with a pub talk. You must seriously consider if you wish to allow disparaging comments about past leaders in a piece like this. It might sound humorous to some, but in the long run, you will lose audience.
    I would like a quick reply as to whether a clear policy is in place for ensuring a degree of sanctity.

    Thanks to Prof M D Nalapat for his candid views and opinions on PV garu architect of 1991 economic reforms. Few more words could have been extended on how Dr.S.Swamy played a key role in the said reforms. A non performer/under achiever/underhand dealer (mega scams),RS member (not elected by people) former PM Manmohan Singh was glorified by the media to delete PV’s name from our minds and hearts. After MMS, PC’s name chips in as an intellect! An intellect in scams/corruption or knowledge?

    PV’s rich knowledge and experience was used by the Congress-I party. PV was an asset for the Congress-I in times of crisis. I remember, PV’s dead body was kept outside the AICC Headquarters /on the footpath of the AICC Headquarters for an hour and flown to Hyderabad airport. Rally sad. Sonia insulted him. But still Sonia enjoys luxurious life style with big security and lives in a bigger mansion in floor space if measured in square feet than PM Modi’s residence now!
