SPEND­ING ON STAT­UES

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - HARYANA -

Apro­pos ‘Why UP likes play­ing statue, statue’ (HT In­sight, Nov 14), this game, like cricket, is very pop­u­lar through­out the coun­try. Even Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi has an­nounced a statue of Sar­dar Pa­tel worth Rs 2,500 crore for his home state, Gujarat. If our coun­try is lag­ging be­hind in health care, ed­u­ca­tion and in­fra­struc­ture, it’s only be­cause of this waste­ful ex­pen­di­ture. This game of statue, statue ends only when the player says ‘over’, we need to unan­i­mously say ‘over’ to this game. Naresh Jo­har, Amritsar
