Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be unveiling the statue of Swami Vivekanand at the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus today evening. The inauguration will be done through a video conference call. The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union also known as JNUSU has called for an anti-Modi protest over the funds used for the construction of the statue and also because the entire statue is covered in a saffron-colored cloth and stands in between the entire administration block of the campus.
JNU vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar in an official statement said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unveil (through video-conference) the life-size statue of Swami Vivekananda installed in the university campus on November 12, at 6:30 pm. The unveiling of the statue will be preceded by a programme on Swami Vivekananda.”
