A monument of the former prime minister, VP Singh, was inaugurated here on Monday by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin.
This is the location of the life-size statue of Singh in Presidency College.
Alongside former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and leader of the Samajwadi Party Akhilesh Yadav, Stalin inaugurated the monument of the late Singh.
On this occasion, members of Singh’s family were there.
Later, flowers were presented to a painting of Singh by Stalin, Yadav, and other people.
Stalin had said in April that the government of Tamil Nadu will erect a monument in Singh’s honor, noting that the previous prime minister had instituted the 27% quota for Other Backward Classes in Central government employment on the advice of the BP Mandal Commission.
