MORARJI DESAI

MORARJI DESAI

An indefatigable fighter for national liberation, an eminent Gandhian who crusaded for a just and equitable society and an epitome of virtue and righteousness, Morarji Desai was one of the titans of the freedom struggle and of modern India and an outstanding statesman.  For him, principles were always paramount.  Nothing else-not power, not fame, not fortune-mattered for him.  His sterling qualities such as firmness and courage of conviction, capacity to face problems daringly, staunch patriotism and sincere faith in the national way of life and spiritual orientation endeared him to the nation at large.  At various points of time, he was a Chief Minister of Bombay and Union Minister holding key portfolios.  He was Deputy Prime Minister from 1967 to 1969.  As Chairman of the Administrative Reforms Commission, he endeavoured through the Commission's Report to tone up the administration and suggested reforms of far-reaching significance.  As Prime Minister, Morarji Desai epitomised the determination of the nation to surmount all obstacles with a firm resolve.

The portrait, painted by R.D. Pareek, was unveiled by the then President of India, Dr. Shanker Dayal Sharma on 15 December 1995.

The portrait was donated by the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.
