Modi Suit Buyer Diamond Tycoon Accused of Favouritism in Surats Land Allotment

The BJP government in Gujarat has planned to return the “favour” diamond tycoon Laljibhai Patel had done by purchasing PM Narendra Modi’s suit for Rs4.31 crore in February.

The disputed land, priced around Rs54 crore, was earlier marked by the civic body as “reserved for social infrastructure”, which could have included construction of roads, hospitals or any other public utility service.
The Anandiben Patel government’s tacit approval became apparent after Gujarat Sports Minister Nanubhai Vanani signed the application along with Patel for “reconsideration” of the “reservation purpose” of the land. The civic planning committee this week reportedly accepted  Nanubhai Vanani’s “request” and agreed to change the purpose from social infrastructure to sports activities.
