Bengaluru: Former Prime Minister H. D. Devegowda on Sunday November 6 urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to install a bronze statue of Nadaprabhu Kempegowda on the Parliament premises.

The request was made prior to the PM’s visit to the City on November 11 for unveiling the 108-foot statue of City’s founder at Kempegowda International Airport.

In the letter HDD wrote, “It is a request to consider establishing a bronze statue of Nadaprabhu Kempegowda on the premises of our Parliament.”

According to the JD (S) Leader, Kempegowda founded Bengaluru in the 16th Century and the seed he planted then has since bloomed into a globally renowned metropolis. He further stated in his letter that Kempegowda who personifies Bengaluru could very well be seen as a symbol of India’s technological leap.

“There is no other City in India that houses as many public and private institutions of scientific and technological excellence,” he added.
