Modi government’s prestigious iconic statue of Sardar Vallabhai Patel in Narmada district has been put for online sale by an unknown miscreant on OLX.
He put a price tag of Rs. 30,000 for the Statue of Unity, saying the money will be spent for fighting coronavirus outbreak. Soon, Kevadiya Police booked the miscreant.
A case was registered against an unknown person in Gujarat for placing an online advertisement to "sell" the Statue of Unity in Kevadiya in Narmada district for Rs 30,000 crore to meet the government's expenses for hospitals and medical infrastructure to fight the coronavirus outbreak. The memorial to Sardar Patel, at 182 metres, is the world's tallest such structure and has attracted several lakh people since it was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2018.
"Some unknown person placed an advertisement on OLX on Saturday stating he needs to sell the Statue of Unity for Rs 30,000 crore to meet the requirement of money to buy hospitals and healthcare equipment," a Kevadiya police station official said quoting the FIR.
