Nandamuri Harikrishna a person who opposed separate Telangana state now a memorial to be made on his name in Telangana. He opposed separate statehood for Telangana in an intense manner and a staunch supporter of united AP.
Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav announced 450 square yards land to develop a memorial for Nandamuri Harikrishna, who died in a road accident on Wednesday. The move seems to seek the favour of the Andhra people settled in Telangana, ahead of the elections.
The land to be allotted for the memorial is located adjoining cremation ground where Harikrishna was consigned to flames. The State government did not develop any memorials for Telangana.
“Harikrishna’s death is a loss to NTR’s family. Our sympathies are with the family. But, we condemn giving land for the memorial, who spoke against the formation of Telangana. The state government’s move is a disrespect to over 1,000 students who laid their lives for Telangana.” Telangana Praja Samithi (TPS) president Neera Kishore said.
He further added that the memorial could be developed in Amaravathi If KCR wants a memorial for Harikrishna, let him allot his personal land. Telangana lands should not be utilised for political mileage.
