INR 25 Billion For a Statue…


The statue, which the Gujarat government claims will be the world's tallest, is expected to cost Rs. 2,500 crores and was to have been financed by the state and public donations. Led by Mr Modi as Chief Minister, the state government last year launched a drive to collect donations of cash and iron from farmers and others across the country.
With the project featuring prominently in Mr Jaitley's budget announcements, it will receive central funds for the first time.


There HAS TO BE a better way to spend all that money!

There were going to be donations and all that crap. Now in addition to that, 'Achche Din Ka Budget' allocates INR 2 Billion for the statue.. kyon bhai?

Jaitley himself had harped on about how this budget 'would be a departure from the mere populism and wasteful expenditure that has dragged down Asia's third-largest economy' [Link]. What does he call spending INR 2 billion on a statue? Gainful expense?

Dikhaawon pe mat jaao… apni akal ladaao.
