Rajiv Gandhi, architect of modern India: YSR


Hyderabad, Aug 19 (THD NEWS):- The Chief Minister, Dr Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy, today said that history of modern India cannot even be imagined without the leadership and contributions of late Rajiv Gandhi.

Dr Reddy paid glowing tributes to the late former prime minister on the eve of the lattera€™s birthday. He said that it was Mr Rajiv Gandhi who led India into the 21st century and brought about technological and communication revolution in the country.

The Chief Minister was speaking after releasing a book on Rajiv Gandhi before emplaning for Delhi today. The book was authored by Jaya Surya, a senior journalist from Tanuku. The Chief Minister said Rajiv Gandhi was the youngest Prime Minister, perhaps even one of the youngest elected heads of any country in the world. As the harbinger of a generation change in the country, Mr Rajiv Gandhi received the biggest mandate in the nation's history. He said Rajiv Gandhi was a symbol of sacrifice and integrity. His contribution for the nationa€™s peace, unity and prosperity was unique, he added.

The Chief Minister said that it was late Rajiv Gandhi who modernized the telecommunications industry and the education system, expanded science and technology initiatives. He was the forerunner of genuine participatory democracy from the grassroots level through the 73rd and 74th Constitution Amendments. He ensured that even persons at the basic level a€" the villages--- have a say and role in deciding their developmental priorities, based on their felt needs and concerns. Rural communities are today more articulate and vocal in demanding a better deal for themselves.

Dr Reddy said that late Rajiv Gandhi underlined the importance and necessity of transforming unskilled manpower into valuable Human Resource by creating adequate infrastructure and facilities for necessary training. He firmly believed that training was the key for enhancing skills and keep pace with ever-changing world.
