Even though TRS chief and Telangana CM KCR passed resolution in assembly opposing the renaming of Shamshabad airport domestic terminal as NTR airport, KCR said he has no grudge against the great leader. Speaking in the assembly before passing the resolution, he said there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that NTR was a great leader and legendary actor.
He said however it is not the question of NTR’s name here but it is related to Telangana honour. He said Telangana Govt already wrote letter to Union Govt to name the airport after former PM PV.Narasimha Rao if they have to change the name but in principle oppose the name change as former PM Rajiv Gandhi too sacrificed for the country.
He said Telangana people sentiments are against Andhra leaders names and keeping this in mind, his govt is changing some of the names. He said NTR name could be kept to any of the airports in Vizag, Rajamundry, Vijaywada or Tirupati.
