Reddy Replaces “APJ Abdul Kalam Pratibha Puraskar” With “YSR Vidya Puraskar”

YSR Congress party chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy led Andhra Pradesh government on 4th November passed an order to rename an award named after former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam and name it after Jagan Reddy’s father YSR Rajasekhar Reddy.

Issuing a government order, the Andhra Pradesh education department said the Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Pratibha Puraskar Awards will now be known as YSR Vidya Puraskar Awards.

Slamming the AP government’s order, former AP chief minister and Telugu Desam Party national president N. Chandrababu Naidu wrote on his Twitter page, “ Dr. Kalam has accomplished much for the nation with his inspiring life. YS Jagan ’s govt changing “APJ Abdul Kalam Pratibha Puraskar” to “YSR Vidya Puraskar” is a shocking method of self-aggrandizement at the cost of disrespecting a much venerated man.”
