A temple in the name of Narendra Modi to be built in Meerut where admirers of the Prime Minister can offer worship.

J.P Singh, the ‘follower and supporter’ of Mr. Modi, told presspersons that the temple would be built on five acres of land in the Sardhana area of Meerut where a 100-foot statue of the Prime Minister would be installed. Mr. Singh, who retired on September 29 as assistant engineer in the Irrigation department, said, “I am inspired by the love Narendra Modiji has for mother India. The ‘Modi magic’ deserves that a temple be built which will also be a kind of commemoration of Modiji’s model of development.”

Mr. Singh said, “5 acres of land has been bought on Meerut-Karnal highway. A huge statue of Modiji will be installed in the temple. It will take two years to complete the Modi temple.” Mr. Singh said the bhoomi pujan would be held on October 23. He said the estimated expenditure of ₹10 crore would be generated out of public donations.
