To com­pen­sate for the harm the project will cause, the gov­ern­ment al­lo­cated ` 100 crore for cli­mate change.

ANUSHREE TENDOLKAR This is mad­ness! Spend­ing crores in the name of Sar­dar Pa­tel? Had he been alive, he would have ve­he­mently op­posed this idea. Look at the amount al­lo­cated for cli­mate change. This is sheer in­sen­si­tiv­ity. In­dia needs vi­sion, not stat­ues.

GOVIND SONY Wast­ing tax­pay­ers' money on a con­crete block that will even­tu­ally be dec­o­rated with bird shit.

BHU­PEN­DER KATARIA The en­vi­ron­ment was nei­ther de­stroyed by a sin­gle per­son/ gov­ern­ment nor can it be pro­tected by a sin­gle per­son/gov­ern­ment. The world needs a global part­ner­ship of peo­ple, gov­ern­ment, NGOs and pri­vate com­pa­nies.
