PM Narendra Modi, on 24th December Laid Foundation for the Shivaji Memorial, whose controversies have been doing rounds these days.
This Shiv Smarak is a coming up project which will be constructed upon the Arabian Sea, around 1.5 km from Mumbai shoreline opposite Marine Drive.
The cost involved in the construction is said to be Rs, 3,600 crores.
Now the question arises, whether we really need this Memorial??
Some People claim that it is good for India, firstly it hails from one of the greatest leaders, as also it would be a Tourist spot which encourages Tourism in India, on the other hand, people have also opposed it saying the cost spent on this project can be used to establish better infrastructure, education, and Health, which Shivaji Maharaj Would have also done.

Even Shivaji Maharaj wouldn’t approve of this taking the current infrastructure situation into account. #ShivajiMemorial

So govt. can spend 3600 CR for #ShivajiMemorial but cannot spend on a technology for roads to avoid potholes in near future!

Shivaji did an enormous amount of work for his people. What would he say about how these clowns are spending 3,600 crore? #ShivajiMemorial
