Former Prime Minister Narasimha Rao’s native village to be turned into tourism spot
Telangana is planning to construct a memorial tourism site at former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao’s village exhibiting his life and struggles. Rao’s native village is Vangara in Warangal.
State tourism minister V Srinivas Goud visited Vangara and revealed the plan for the development of the village as a tourism spot. He said, “The village would be recognised globally to mark the centenary celebrations of late Narasimha Rao.”
To continue educating and inspiring the country and its younger generations of Rao’s personality, the building where he lived will be developed into a museum which will have a photo gallery exhibiting his journey and a collection of his belongings.
In order to make the village attractive, a double road will be laid leading from Warangal to Siddipet and the entrance to the village will also be beautified, the minister said.
Additionally, a suspension bridge over the Vangara pond will add to its beauty making it a mini tank bund. Further, he said a decision on developing the Shiva temple in the village and the model park on seven acres of land would be taken soon.
“The government will take necessary steps to develop the site as a good tourism hub that would attract people from all over the country,” he added. He also met the relatives of the former PM and discussed the necessary arrangements for the development of the tourist centre.
