Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday that a ‘grand statue’ of Subhas Chandra Bose will be installed at India Gate.
“I am glad to share that the grand statue, made of granite, will be installed at India Gate. This would be a symbol of India’s indebtedness to him,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted.
PM Modi said “till the time the statue is constructed, a hologram bust of ‘Netaji’ will be put up at the iconic monument in the national capital”.
“I will unveil the hologram statue on 23rd January, Netaji’s birth anniversary,” he posted.
The statue will be 28 feet by 6 feet and will stand at the spot that once featured a statue of England’s King George V. That statue was removed and shifted in 1968.
