Prime Minister Narendra Modi, acknowledging the huge backlash after a statue of 19th century reformer Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar was broken in clashes at Amit Shah’s roadshow in Kolkata, promised to install his “grand statue” at the same spot. “We are committed to Vidyasagar’s vision and will install his grand statue made of panchdhatu (five metals) at the same spot,” pledged the Prime Minister. Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’s bust was broken on the premises of the Vidyasagar College, which was on the route of Amit Shah’s roadshow on Tuesday evening. Amit Shah alleged that Mamata Banerjee had her own party men smash the bust to pin the blame on the BJP ahead of the last round of voting in Bengal. Kolkata has four of the nine constituencies that will vote on Sunday in 42-seat Bengal.
