Decoding move of PM MODI for making the statue of Chatrapati Shivaji in middle of Ocean
The day, the social media buzzed with the story of PM MODI getting ready to do rituals to start construction of SHIVAJI statue,created a whole new dimension of pandemodium.
People started crying about wastage of money in crores,even people started floating proposals via change.org against the construction.
Media jumped in creating a whole big of mess but none was able to stop PM MODI .
People even became one day hotshot economists & harped about wastage of money crying their heads off.
What they do not know is, this statue is a masterstroke by PM Modi which will pay for itself many times over.
The statue is made of Amorphous Silicon, Cadmium Telluride & Copper Indium Gallium Selenide.
This is exactly the same material used to make solar cells. Our government consulted with Dr. Immonen Kirsi, Senior Solar Scientist at VTT Research, Finland to develop technology to mould these materials into a statue form.
This research took 2.5 years & on December 3rd, Dr. Kirsi sent an email to Modi Sir that it is now ready for mainstream use. The statue has capability to generate enough electricity to power all government offices in Mumbai.
The statue also has Radial Uniform Projection And Ranging(RUPAR) technology to track boats in the Arabian Sea to prevent a repeat of the 2008 Mumbai attack where the terrorists entered India through the sea. RUPAR is the next generation of SONAR technology and has been developed at the Indian Institute of Science.
The 192-metre-tall statue of the warrior king mounted on a war horse wielding a sword has been given all clearances. The chief minister who visited the egg shaped basalt rocky plain almost 3.5 kms into the Arabian Sea discussed the phasewise project estimated to incur a total expenditure, along with other infrastructure and entertainment zones, of Rs 1,900 to Rs 2,000 crore.
Highly placed sources in the ministry of finance revealed, “To begin with, we may set aside Rs 200 to 250 crore for the Shivaji statue project. It is symbolic to begin with as the entire project would be in big private partnerships.” However, the government appears committed to taking up the project on a war footing as it wants to fulfill its promise made to people of Maharashtra in the 2014 Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
Fadnavis said, “ My government is committed to constructing Chhatrapati Shivaji’s memorial. We have got all clearances required. There are some aspects being fine tuned to begin the work.”
The state government had appointed a committee led by Shivsangram chief Vinayak Mete to look into the project.
Union Minister for Environment Prakash Javadekar said, “The Centre has already given its go-ahead to the state government’s project. Yet, if there are any aspects which needs to be re-looked or reworked we will coordinate with the state government. The centre has given its complete approval for the project.”
The government has set an ambitious target of completing the project by 2019. Although many in the Congress-NCP believe it is an uphill task considering it’s a mammoth project and has huge financial implications, the Fadnavis government believes it is achievable.
Governor C H Vidyasagar Rao’s joint address to members of the State Legislature Assembly and Council at the Central Hall on the first day of the budget session also found a mention of the Shivaji memorial project.
While maintaining there is no hurdle in the way of the project, the government revealed, “A project management consultant has been appointed. The government will complete this work by year 2019.”
The project, first discussed in 1980 remained on the backburner till 2004. The Congress-NCP government revived the project with a great zeal and set up an experts committee to chalk out the design and landscape. However, Congress-NCP, which repeatedly made a mention of this project in their election manifesto, could never take the project to its logical end.
A former NCP minister who was part of the team said, “There were problems in getting clearance from of the union environment ministry. However, despite cabinet clearance it could never translate into reality.”
Fadnavis also has a strong support from Shiv Sena for the project. Sena (MLA) Sunil Prabhu said, “The chief minister has shown a political will which was lacking in the Congress-NCP government.”
Congratulations to all Scientists...🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳
