ON WHOSE PEDESTAL?

Deccan Chronicle - - EDIT -

It’s dis­heart­en­ing to see that the gov­ern­ment is ready to shell out an ex­or­bi­tant sum on a statue (NTR to make way for Ambed­kar Park, DC Oct 12). The ex­pen­di­ture doesn’t stop at in­stal­la­tion of the statue, tax­pay­ers’ money is used to main­tain it year after year. The gov­ern­ment can utilise this money on im­prov­ing roads and the sewage sys­tem.

Deepesh Su­rana Bo­larum, Se­cun­der­abad The new trend of po­lit­i­cal par­ties re­sort­ing to in­stal­la­tion of stat­ues is alarm­ing. Why should TS and UP Chief Min­is­ters K. Chan­drasekhar Rao and Yogi Adityanath waste pub­lic money on stat­ues that are of no use to the com­mon man who is fac­ing hard­ships ev­ery day? I be­lieve the Supreme Court should step in and put a curb on stat­ues for po­lit­i­cal gains. B.V. Rama Ku­mar Moti­na­gar, Hy­der­abad
