Motera stadium renamed after PM Narendra Modi, the complex still has Sardar Patel’s name
The England cricket team is coming to India to participate in a four-match Test series. At the end of the first two Tests, both teams have won one match each and are in a tie. The third Test between the two teams will be played at the Motira Ground, the largest stadium in the world, in Ahmedabad.
About 50,000 fans are allowed to watch the Test match. The ground was inaugurated by Indian President Ram Nath Govind and Home Minister Amit Shah ahead of the first day’s play. Then Ramnath Govind said that this ground will be named after Prime Minister Narendra Modi as it is the dream project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
There was confusion that the name of the ground was suddenly changed to Narendra Modi. In this case, the government has given an explanation to put an end to this confusion. In a video released by Gujarat Chief Minister Nitin Patel, he said, “This ground belongs to the Gujarat Cricket Federation. It will always be known as the Ring Ground.
But it was the idea of Narendra Modi, then president of the Gujarat Cricket Federation, to demolish the old ground and build a new one. Currently, the entire sports complex is named after Sardar Patel. Only the name of a cricket ground in it will be called Narendra Modi. ”
The world’s largest stadium, the Motira Stadium, is spread over 63 acres of land. Its total seating capacity is 1,32,000. This makes Modira Ground larger than Melbourne Cricket Ground, which currently has the largest fan base (90,000). And its total area is about 2,38,714.
