Posters of PM torn, blackened

Posters depicting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s ‘Statue of Unity’ were being torn or blackened by tribals who oppose the unveiling of the statue in Gujarat’s Narmada district, an official said on Saturday.

Across the district, 90% of the posters depicting Modi and Chief Minister Vijay Rupani were being either torn or blackened.

“This is clearly a sign of how the tribal community is dissenting against the BJP. They have taken away our land, the most valuable resource a tribal has, to carry out the so called development,” said Prafull Vasava, a tribal leader.

“The authorities have replaced the torn posters with new ones and they are being guarded by the police,” he said.
