NCP Majeed Memon and JNUSU students react to Swami Vivekanand statue unveiling row

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Thursday, unveiled the Swami Vivekananda statue in the JNU Campus. The inauguration was done via a video conference call. The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) had called for an anti-Modi protest over the funds used for the construction of the statue.
PM Modi while addressing the nation said that national interest is superior for every Indian.
JNUSU Joint Secy Dolan Samanta said that being a concerned citizen and a student of this country she has the right to question the Prime Minister over the statue and funds without being called an anti-nationalist. NCP leader Majeed Memon said that spending crores of rupees on a statue is not correct when the conditions of the Indian economy are not happy.
