On the occasion of the birth anniversary of late actor NT Rama Rao, Megastar Chiranjeevi took his Twitter and demanded a Bharat Ratna for NTR which happens to be the highest civilian award for any Indian. In his post written in Telugu, Chiranjeevi said that it would be a pride for every Telugu person if NTR is honored with Bharat Ratna.
Chiranjeevi tweet read, “Pride of the Telugu people and well renowned leader NTR well and truly deserves Bharat Ratna. If the prestigious award is conferred upon him, it would be a proud honor for Telugu community. I am fondly remembering the great personality Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao on the occasion of his 98th birth anniversary.”
Legendary actor NTR had formed the TDP in 1982 and created a record of sorts by leading the TDP party to power within nine months in the then undivided Andhra Pradesh. NTR was one who launched popular welfare programmes like Rs 2 kg rice and housing for the poor people.
