New Delhi, Oct 16 (PTI) An equestrian statue of freedom fighter Rani Laxmi Bai, located on a street in Jhandewalan here, will be moved to a park to ease traffic movement in the area, North Delhi Mayor Jai Prakash said on Friday.
He said moving of the imposing statue will also facilitate extension of a flyover being built in that area.
'The statue was installed about 10 years ago. It will now be shifted to a park near DCM Chowk. We plan to name the park after Rani Jhansi, after the statue is moved,' Prakash said.
Jhandewalan and neighbouring Sadar Bazaar are part of a trading hub, and traffic is generally heavy in the area. PTI KND CK
