BJP defends renaming Sardar Patel stadium in Ahmedabad's Motera

Feb 24, 2021 20:05 IST | By EDITORJI NEWS DESK

While the Congress has criticized renaming of Sardar Patel Cricket Stadium to Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad's Motera, saying it is an insult to India’s first Home Minister, the BJP has come out in defence of its move. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad responded to criticism saying "Sonia Gandhi and others never visited Kevedia to pay respect to Sardar Patel statue and now they are talking about insulting Sardar Patel," Union Minister Prakash Javedkar issued a clarification saying, "Only the name of the stadium has been changed but the entire complex will still be known as Sardar Patel Cricket Stadium."
