The auction was earlier scheduled to be held till October 2, which was extended till October 12. This information was given by the Ministry of Culture three days ago. According to the ministry, the proceeds from the auction will be used for the Namami Gange project. Recently, the ministry started an e-auction of gifts received on the birthday of PM Modi.
The biggest attraction during the auction is the models of the Shri Ram Temple in Ayodhya and the new Kashi-Viswanath Temple in Varanasi. Apart from this, there is a badminton racket, autographed by ace shuttler K Srikanth. In addition, there are sports jerseys with autographs of the wrestling, hockey, lawn bowling and para-powerlifting teams.
This will be the fourth successful series of the auction. The auction of gifts received by Narendra Modi, who became the Prime Minister in 2014, was also held in 2018 and 2019. In 2018, 1900 gifts received by the PM were put up for auction. In 2019, 2772 gifts were auctioned. The gifts sold through the e-auction included products like turbans, half jackets, paintings and bows found by the Prime Minister.
Apart from this, a framed painting made of thread, a mace of Lord Hanuman and a metallic idol of Sardar Patel were also included in these gifts. According to sources, this time the preparations for the online auction have been completed. PMO is going to release its full information soon on its website.
People keep demanding gifts from Prime Minister Narendra Modi through Facebook, Twitter and NaMo app. Now again people have a chance to make the gift received by PM Modi their own. Even when PM Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, he used to deposit gifts in the government treasury. PM Modi is still following the same tradition.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi became the CM of Gujarat for the first time in 2002, in this way he has completed 20 years as CM and PM, so this time the auction of gifts will be held for 20 days.
