Motera Stadium Is Renamed Narendra Modi Stadium: Who Said What As Congress Slams BJP

INDIA Team Latestly|

The surprise renaming of the revamped Motera cricket stadium in Gujarat after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 24 caused a flood of reactions on social media. The largest cricket ground in the world was launched by President Ram Nath Kovind & has a capacity of 1,32,000. What was earlier referred to the Motera Stadium or the Sardar Patel Stadium will now be called the Narendra Modi stadium. The stadium will be a part of the planned Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave in the city.

Amid controversy over the renaming, the government said the name change involves only the Motera Stadium & the entire sports complex continues to be named after Sardar Patel. BJP's rivals & critics, however, accused it of "insulting" Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, a freedom icon and India's first Home Minister. Watch the video to know more.
