He may have resigned from the Official Language Implementation Committee of the AP government in protest against the renaming of the NTR health university as Dr YSR health university, but scholar-politician Yarlagadda Lakshmi Prasad refuses to criticise YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Despite his opposition to the renaming of the university, Yarlagadda is all praise for YS Jagan.

He said there was no question of his taking back the resignation. He, however, said that he would continue to serve the Telugu language in his own way. He said he would not take up any official positions in future. He justified his decision to resign from the Official Language Implementation Committee on the issue of renaming of the university.

He also revealed that he was getting abusive calls from anonymous callers, who were using foul language against him for not criticising YS Jagan on this issue. He said he considered YS Jagan Mohan Reddy a hero. He said that Jagan was a hero because he took on the might of Sonia Gandhi and defeated the Congress Party.

He said he has great love for YS Rajasekhar Reddy as he had named Telugu Ganga Canal after NTR. He said YSR has done great service to the Telugu language. He said that he would not comment on politics of Andhra Pradesh. But, I would continue to consider YS Jagan has a hero, said Yarlagadda Lakshmiprasad.
