Pawri Of Cronies: Sitaram Yechury Hits Out At Centre On PM Modi Stadium's Name
CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury today mocked the centre for renaming the Motera cricket stadium in Gujarat after Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He used the popular "pawri ho rahi hai" viral trend on social media to hit out at the BJP-led government and said it's a "pawri" (party) of cronies.
Soon after President Ram Nath Kovind inaugurated the refurbished Sardar Patel cricket stadium, which will be known as "Narendra Modi Stadium", in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, social media was flooded with remarks including by some leaders of the Congress and other opposition parties who alleged that the renaming exercise amounted to an "insult" to Sardar Patel.
However, the government said the name change involves only the Motera stadium and the sports complex where it is located will continue to be named after Sardar Patel.
