PV was born on June 28, 1921 to Ruknabai and Sitarama Rao in Laknepalli village of Narsampeta Mandal, Warangal District, Telangana. Primary education started in Warangallu district. Later Pamulaparthi Ranga Rao and Rukminamma of Wangara village Bhimadevarapalli mandal of Karimnagar district adopted him. Since then PV Pamulaparthi became Venkata Narasimha Rao. He joined the Congress Party in 1938. Vande Matara was sung in defiance of the Nizam's government ban. Due to this he was expelled from Osmania University. Later he joined Nagpur University with a friend and studied LLB from 1940 to 1944 while staying at his friend's house. PV participated in the freedom movement under the guidance of Swami Ramananda Tirtha and Burgula Ramakrishna Rao and in the liberation struggle of Hyderabad. He joined the Congress party as a disciple of Burgula and worked with the then young Congress leaders Marri Chenna Reddy, Shankarao Chavan and Virendra Patil. In 1951, he became a member of the All India Congress Committee.
In state politics..
PV Narsimha Rao entered the Andhra Pradesh state level politics by being elected to the Legislative Assembly from Manthani Constituency in 1957. He was elected to the Assembly four times in a row from this constituency. He became a minister for the first time in 1962. From 1962 to 1964, he was the Minister of Justice and Information, from 1964 to 1967, Minister of Law and Debt, in 1967, Minister of Medicine and Health, and from 1968 to 1971, Minister of Justice and Information.
As Chief Minister..
The separate Telangana movement of 1969 had just died down. The immediate problem before the Congress party is to change the Chief Minister. Keeping in mind the sentiments of Telangana people and movement leaders, it is inevitable to select a Telangana regional leader as the Chief Minister. There are no few aspirants for the post of Chief Minister from the Telangana region. His non-controversial personality and political background without any faction in the party made PV the Chief Minister on September 30, 1971. And PV's record as Chief Minister is not a solid one. As soon as he ascended the pedestal, dissension arose in the party. It would have been enough to go back and forth between Delhi and Hyderabad to discuss this matter with the authorities. A political observer commented that if the chief secretary of the state had to talk to the chief minister, it would be easier in Delhi than in Hyderabad. At that time, the Supreme Court, the highest court of the country, gave a verdict on the Mulki clause. Concerned with this, the leaders of Kosta and Rayalaseema started a movement called Jai Andhra for a separate Andhra state. Leaders of Andhra and Rayalaseema have accused PV of being biased towards Telangana. As part of the movement, many of the area ministers resigned. On January 8, 1973, the PV Cabinet was reshuffled with new ministers replacing the resigned ministers. But the idea of the party leadership is completely different. The day after the cabinet reshuffle in the state, the Center dissolved the state government. President's rule was imposed by keeping the Assembly in a dormant state. Thus ended PV's Chief Ministership. Although he continued as a member of the Legislative Assembly till 1977, he was completely sidelined in state politics. In 1972, when PV was the Chief Minister, he created history by giving 70% to the backward in the assembly elections
In central politics..
Later PV's political workplace shifted to Delhi. He was appointed as the General Secretary of the Congress Party. He was elected to the Lok Sabha for the first time from Hanumakonda seat. He was elected to the Lok Sabha for the second time again from Hanumakonda. For the third time, he won the eighth Lok Sabha from Ramtek in Maharashtra. Later also he was elected to the ninth Lok Sabha from Ramtek. PV won the 1991 by-election to the Nandyala Lok Sabha constituency and became the 10th Lok Sabha. Stepped. Between 1980 and 1989, he managed the Department of Home Affairs, Department of External Affairs and Human Resource Development at various times.
As Prime Minister..
PM's post accidentally landed PV. PV did not contest the 1991 general elections. Almost away from politics. However, due to the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in the same year, the Congress party lost its leader. PV, who avoided group politics and was acceptable to all, became the hope of the presidency. He almost returned from Vanaprastha and took charge as the Prime Minister. PV entered the Lok Sabha after resigning from Nandyala Lok Sabha constituency in Andhra Pradesh with Gangula Prathapara Reddy, winning the by-election there. But it is a very difficult time for the government and the Congress party. A situation where the government does not have an absolute majority. But his natural intelligence, statesmanship and experience of serving as a minister in various departments at the center helped him. P.V. was the first Prime Minister from outside the Nehru and Gandhi family to complete a five-year term. Achieving this despite leading a minority government is a testament to his statesmanship and shrewdness. That is why he is called Apara Chanakya.
During PV's tenure as Prime Minister, many great changes and developments took place in India's political, economic and social systems. Many allegations of corruption surrounded the government and PV. He seeded reforms to revive the bankrupt economy. He freed his finance minister, Manmohan Singh, and pushed for reforms. As a result of the reforms of that time, India's economy has enjoyed tremendous growth since then. That is why PV is called the father of economic reforms.
PV government is credited with successfully suppressing extremism in Punjab. PV is also credited with freeing celebrities when they were abducted by Kashmiri extremists without giving in to their demands. Diplomatic relations with Israel, exposing Pakistan's encouragement to terrorism and bringing it into discussion in the world, increasing relations with Southeast Asian countries, increasing relations with China and Iran are some of the many achievements of the PV government in foreign relations. In 1998, it was the PV government that started the nuclear tests carried out by the Vajpayee government. The bomb was made during his time. Vajpayee himself announced this.
Criticism of PV
PV's controversies and corruption allegations in his life are almost all related to incidents that happened during his tenure as Prime Minister.
– In 1994, there were criticisms that he had adopted crooked ways to get his minority government from Gandham through a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha.
– 1992, the incident of demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on December 6 was the biggest incident that happened during his five-year rule. Not being able to save it was one of his biggest failures.
