A grand temple worth Rs 30 crore is going to be built to honour Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut district.

The temple would be built in Sardhana area of Meerut where a 100-foot statue of Modi would be installed.

The 'Bhumi Pujan' and the stone laying ceremony for the same would take place on October 23. Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah is expected to attend the event.

The temple is being built by a retired engineer from the Uttar Pradesh Irrigation Department, J P Singh.

The follower of the PM said that it will take nearly two years to complete the Modi temple.

When questioned about the motive behind building the statue, Singh said, "I like Prime Minister Modi's policies since decades and because I was still in the job, I was unable to do anything for him." -- ANI
