An admirer of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sculpted several money banks in the form his statues.
Jai Prakash, who hails from Bihar's Muzaffarpur district, has displayed several statues of Modi in his roadside shop and claims that each of the them has a capacity to store Rs 1 lakh both in coins and currency notes.
"The idea to develop statues of PM Narendra Modi came last year when he imposed Janata curfew during the first wave of Corona in March. He had taken such a decision to save the lives of our countrymen. I want to make people, especially children, talk about our great prime minister who is the best in the world," Jai said.
"Our prime minister is making all possible efforts to save money so that it would be used in the development of our country. The idea of making piggy banks in his statues came from his particular ideology," he added.
With the massive popularity, there are several other sculptors who have made Modi's statues including a wax monument in London and a 100 feet tall temple in his name in Meerut.
