NTR's wife seeks probe into his death

The second wife of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) founder and former chief minister late N T Rama Rao (NTR), Lakshmi Parvathi wrote a letter to Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao demanding a thorough investigation by a sitting judge into the circumstances that led to her husband’s death. 

She also urged him to not to oppose the renaming of domestic terminal of the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad after NTR.

Lakshmi Parvathi, who has a doctorate in Telugu Literature, was the only person to be on NTR’s bedside when the actor-turned-politician breathed his last. While the NTR clan and the TDP under her son-in-law Nara Chandrababu Naidu blamed her for his death, Lakshmi Parvathi attributed his demise to the alleged backstabbing by Chandrababu Naidu.

“I remember how NTR was crestfallen when Nara Chandrababu Naidu blocked the TDP bank account. First he took power, then he also took the party,” Lakshmi Parvathi told Deccan Herald. She said that she had urged the Congress government to look into the matter as there was a deep conspiracy surrounding the death of her husband. 

She said that she was just reiterating the demand made by senior Congress MP Hanmanth Rao who asked the TRS government to order an investigation into NTR’s death. 

Lakshmi Parvathi, who is currently associated with the YSR Congress party, says that she has urged the Telangana government for a judicial inquiry as an individual and the party has nothing to do with it.

After the death of his first wife Basava Tarakam, NTR married Lakshmi Parvathi in 1993. At that time, she was writing his biography. 

However, NTR’s family members never accepted her and kept their distance. She was also evicted from NTR’s house in Banjara hills and is currently residing in a rented accommodation in Film Nagar.
