221 meter high Lord Ram statue in Uttar PradeshThe Uttar Pradesh Government announced the construction of Lord Rama statue on the banks of Sarayu river. This statue will dwarf the statue of Sardar Patel in Gujarat. The overall height of the statue will be 221 meters. The statue will be 151 meters, pedestal 50 meters and the Umbrella over the statue will be of height 20 meters. The location and the funding are yet to be announced by the Uttar Pradesh Government.
In our country, many of the people are below the poverty line. They are without basic necessities like food and shelter. The Uttar Pradesh State is not having enough revenue to sustain by itself. Mr. Adityanath, the Chief Minister, without considering the development of the State is plundering the money on projects like this. Hope the State Government will focus on the development of the State and its people.
