Burgula Ramakrishna Rao

As a freedom fighter, Burgula Ramakrishna Rao along with Swami Ramananda Teertha and other leaders, led the historic struggle against the Nizam for the merger of Hyderabad State with the Indian Union. It is a historic fact that after two and a half centuries of Asaf Jahi rule of Hyderabad State, a Telugu man became the Chief Minister and ran a popular administration of the State for almost five years till the State was trifurcated.  As a seasoned politician and statesman—Dr. Rao could foresee the shape of things to come and feel the pulse of the people and the need for an integrated State of Telugu-speaking people—he put his weight as the elected Chief Minister of the State in favor of Visalandhra that helped the formation of Andhra Pradesh on November 1, 1956. He thus became the architect of the AP State.
