Ahmedabad: As soon as the world’s largest stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad was renamed to be Narendra Modi Stadium, Twitterati were barely asleep with the meme fest that has been ongoing there. And the bowling ends of the stadium called ‘Reliance End’ and ‘Adani End’, memes only doubled in number.
But, there’s a winner among these.
Adding to the already existing political criticism, Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury gave a twist to his jibe by bringing the viral sensation ‘Pawri Ho Rahi Hai’ template to the Narendra Modi Stadium and its bowling ends.
Pointing out the bowling ends named after the country’s largest corporate groups, Yechury called it ‘cronies ki pawri’.
The CPI (M)’s official’s Twitter handled wrote this soon after.
Spread over 63 acres, the Narendra Modi stadium has a seating capacity of a whopping 1,10,000, billed to be the largest in the world. It houses 76 corporate boxes, an Olympic-level swimming pool, an indoor academy, four dressing rooms for athletes, and food courts. It was renovated at the estimated cost of Rs.800 crore.
