A â€˜grand statueâ€™ of Subhas Chandra Bose will be installed at India Gate, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday.
â€œI am glad to share that the grand statue, made of granite, will be installed at India Gate. This would be a symbol of Indiaâ€™s indebtedness to him,â€ Prime Minister Modi tweeted.
PM Modi said â€œtill the time the statue is constructed, a hologram bust of â€˜Netajiâ€™ will be put up at the iconic monument in the national capitalâ€.
â€œI will unveil the hologram statue on 23rd January, Netajiâ€™s birth anniversary,â€ 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.
