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.
