    Nehru is correctly rated as 1 because he gave vision to a new nation but as a person who gives more weight to economic development and growth I believe P. V. NARSIMHA RAO has the best PM took the responsibility of the Indian Prime minister when there was no one in the Congress to do justice to the post and took brave decision of bailing India from economic crisis appointed a person without a political background as his Finance Misnister we know how that worked out for the economy. The Indian economy is still reaping the rewards of his brave decision. Theirfore I can conclude this man has proved to be the PM that India will never remember but has had the most to contribute. Atal ji on the other hand had done his bit by steering the growth of India’s economic infrastructure.
