Mahatma Gandhi loses battle against ‘Bar’


Hyderabad: What is more important ‘Bapu’ (Gandhi) or ‘Bar’? Perhaps bar appeared more important to a district administration in Andhra Pradesh.

In a shocking incident the district administration of Guntur in Andhra Pradesh removed a 23 year old statue of Mahatma Gandhi located near a bar.

The twist is that locals complained to the authorities to remove the bar and wine shop which cropped up near the statue of Mahatma, but to their utter surprise the authorities choose to remove Mahatma’s statue instead of the bar.
