Modi saddened over ‘temple’ issue


New Delhi: Hours after reports and photographs of a temple in Narendra Modi’s name came out in the open, the Prime Minister on Thursday expressed anguish over such a thing in Gujarat. Modi said that it is a shocking affair and completely against the Hindu tradition.

“Have seen the news about a Temple being built in my name. I was appalled. This is shocking & against India’s great traditions,” Modi tweeted.

Urging people to not indulge in such activities, he tweeted, “Building such Temples is not what our culture teaches us. Personally, it made me very sad. Would urge those doing it not to do it. If you have time & resources, please devote the same towards fulfilling our dream of a Clean India.”
