Responding to leaders and representatives of people led by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao, who turned up in large numbers to greet him on the occasion, he said- “I have been celebrating birthdays for the past seventy years but never did I feel so happy about it. This is perhaps for the first time I am extremely happy. Happy for several reasons and important among them is that I am part of the development of an emerging state. When I look back later, I feel satisfied and can tell any one that I am the first governor of the new state (Telangana)”
Mr Narasimhan appreciated the work of ministers and MLAs under the leadership of KCR. ‘I am confident that the state will flourish in all spheres. I have been observing and following the development pattern for the past 29 months and the track is good. I met Mr Rao several times and both of us exchanged views several times on specific issues’ he stated.
