Vice President condoles the demise of Prof. Koneru Ramakrishna Rao
“I am deeply anguished by the demise of well-known educationist, teacher and philosopher, Sri Koneru Ramakrishna Rao, whom I have known personally for many decades.
Prof. Rao was a multi-faceted person and held various key positions, including Vice-Chancellor of Andhra University, Chairman of A.P. State Commissionerate of Higher Education, and Vice-Chairman of Andhra Pradesh State Planning Board. His invaluable contribution to the field of education and Gandhian thought is a source of inspiration to many.
Prof. Rao had established the Department of Parapsychology in Andhra University and lectured at several universities abroad. He was also a psychologist and parapsychologist and had published several books and research papers.
His death is a personal loss to me. I convey my deepest condolences to the bereaved family members. Om Shanti!”
