A massive temple worth Rs. 30 crore will be built to honour Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh.
It will be built in Sardhana area of Meerut where a 100-foot statue of Prime Minister Modi would be installed.
The ‘Bhumi Pujan’ and the stone laying ceremony would take place on 23 October. BJP chief Amit Shah is likely to attend the event.
JP Singh, follower and supporter of PM Modi and a retired engineer from Uttar Pradesh Irrigation Department, announced the decision to construct the statue.
Singh said that it will take nearly two years to complete the Modi temple.
When questioned about the motive behind building the statue, Singh said, “I like Prime Minister Modi’s policies since decades and because I was still in the job, I was unable to do anything for him.”
