Girl gets name after 9 years of waiting

Hyderabad: A nine-year-old girl from Telangana, who did not have a name so far, finally got one after she met Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao with her parents recently.

The parents, Suresh and Anitha, had actively participated in the Telangana statehood movement led by Rao, popularly known as KCR. When their daughter was born in 2013, they wanted her to be named by KCR. The wish remained unfulfilled for nine years, during which the girl had no name.

In her village, however, neighbours and acquaintances would call her “KCR” as they knew she was waiting to be named by the Chief Minister.  Girl no name India
