Vizagites bid adieu to D.V. Subba Rao

Police band leads the cortege of former Mayor D.V. Subba Rao on Sunday in Visakhapatnam.  

N. Venkata Rao, former general secretary of Andhra Cricket Association and former vice president of BCCI, paid glowing tributes to D.V. Subba Rao who passed away on Saturday.

Subba Rao’s mortal remains were consigned to the flames on Sunday.

D.V. Subba Rao and Venkata Rao were together as president and secretary of ACA from 1991 to 2003 and functioned in close coordination.

They had together accomplished the completion of present international stadium at P.M. Palem in Visakhapatnam for which Subba Rao led from the front.

Venkata Rao recalled the untiring efforts P.R. Narayanaswami, the then convenor of the stadium committee, K. Parthasaradhi, secretary, VDCA, and late R.V.V.K. Prasad, treasurer, who played a significant role behind the scene. Mr. Venkata Rao endorsed the Narayanaswami’s view to name the present international stadium after D.V. Subba Rao and said it would be a fitting tribute to him.
