No politics in renaming NTR varsity after YSR: Minister Karumuri

Visakhapatnam, September 22: No political intention behind renaming NTR University of Health Sciences (NTRUHS) after former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR), said Civil Supplies Minister Karumuri Nageswara Rao during a press meet here on Thursday.
 
The minister recalled that YSR saved lakhs of poor lives by launching Aarogyasri scheme and 108 ambulance services. “YSR name is appropriate for health university,” he justified. Responding to a question, he stated that it was the personal decision of Andhra Pradesh Official Language Commission Chairman Yarlagadda Lakshmi Prasad to tender resignation to his post.
 
Further, Karumuri criticised TDP chief and former CM N. Chandrababu Naidu for not giving importance to BCs during his rule. “Chandrababu always used BCs as vote bank,” he said. Praising Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, he said credit goes to the CM for nominating BCs to Rajya Sabha. “Not even once, Chandrababu did not give chance to BCs to represent in Upper House,” he slammed.
