Andhra Pradesh CM says George Fernandes was the best parliamentarian elected for 9 terms

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu Tuesday condoled the death of former Defence Minister George Fernandes and said the latter exemplified simplicity and honesty in life. In a statement, he said Fernandes was the best parliamentarian elected to the Lok Sabha for nine terms.

"Fernandes was one of those who built the trade union movement in the country. He effectively echoed the working class' voice in Parliament. He also bravely fought the Emergency," the Chief Minister said. As Industries Minister in the first non-Congress government at the Centre and later as Defence and Railways Ministers in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, Fernandes rendered exemplary services, he added.
