The Shiv Sena attacked on Friday against Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the stadium was renamed as "Narendra Modi Stadium", the world's largest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad. Shiv Sena termed the naming of the stadium an insult to Sardar Patel.
The Shiv Sena also raised the question that why is every major work of the world being done in Gujarat itself?
In an editorial titled 'Garaj Saro, Patel Maro', Samana said that the PM always said that the tallest statue of Sardar Patel was built because Congress tried to insult him, but now it is clear who is trying to insult Sardar Patel.
It further stated that "It is clear who is trying to erase Patel's name." Modi is great. There is no doubt but if Modi devotees think that he is older than Patel, Gandhi, Nehru, or Indira Gandhi then it is nothing but blind devotion.
Further, in the editorial, the BJP has been challenged saying that people have elected the party, but it has not given them the license to be reckless.
The newly constructed Motera Stadium has been renamed after the Narendra Modi Stadium by President Ram Nath Kovind ahead of the pink ball Test between India and England.
The stadium is the largest cricket stadium in the world as it has a total capacity of 1,32,000 and all facilities have been taken care of.
