On Monday midnight, the idols of Dasari Narayana Rao and Nandamuri Harikrishna on the Vizag beach road were removed by Greater Visakha Municipal Corporation. Tension prevailed when some people tried to stop GVMC. Uttara Andhra director’s association also opposed GVMC. Its been six months since the statues were unveiled. If there is no permission, what GVMC is doing from the past six months, says Uttara Andhra director’s association.
Legendary filmmaker Dasari Naryana Rao had brought huge fame to the Telugu industry. It is saddening that his idol is removed by GVMC officials. Soon we will install new idols with all the permissions required. Uttar Andhra directors Ramesh, Shivasree, Geetalaya Prasad, Rakesh Reddy, Rajeshekhar and actors participated in the dharna.
