Nandamuri Kalyan Ram reacted to the name change of NTR Health University through Twitter. In 1986, a medical university was established in Vijayawada. NTR said that he wanted to make quality medical education available to the students of the three regions of AP and had initiated this Maha Vidyalaya. He recalled that this health university is the best developed in the country and has produced countless health professionals to the country. He said that this university has been renamed as Dr. NTR University of Health Sciences to commemorate his efforts for the improvement of medical studies in Telugu states.
Kalyan Ram said he was saddened to change the name of a prestigious university that has been in existence for over 25 years regardless of which political party is in power. Many people say that it is wrong to use this emotional topic just for political gain. Before that Jr. NTR also received this name change through Twitter. Churakala said that if NTR’s name is removed and YSR’s name is added… his respect will not increase. Both NTR and YSR are great leaders who have gained great popularity.. This kind of honor brought by taking one’s name and naming the other will not raise YSR’s level and will not lower NTR’s level, NTR said. He tweeted that by changing the name of the university, NTR’s fame, his status in the history of the Telugu race and his memories in the hearts of the Telugu people have not been erased. Ramakrishna’s press note was released on behalf of NTR’s family yesterday on Wednesday.
