Even as we continue to battle a falling economy, the government feels another statue is the need of the hour. 

Because the UP government, led by CM Yogi Adityanath, approved a ₹450-crore budget for a 251-meter tall Ram Statue, according to several reports. The statue, which is supposed to be a part of the Ram Nagari Ayodhya Project, will reportedly be installed on the banks of river Sarayu.
