2,700 crore on memorials
While the Supreme Court will be taking up the issue of Lucknow's memorials that have crossed the Rs 2000 crore in costs not counting the demolition of a stadium to add to the memorial, what is surprising is that when this was being planned nobody took up the matter. What can be done now that the money has been spent? What can be done with 60 life-size elephants and the numerous other statues? They simply have to remain.
