Netaji statue in Delhi: Monolithic block of granite sourced from Telangana quarry


New Delhi: A monolithic block of granite weighing 280 metric tonne from which just-unveiled grand statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose has been carved out, was sourced from a quarry in Telangana and a stretch of “makeshift road” had to be built to transport the stone to a national highway for sending it to Delhi.

A 100-ft-long truck with 140 wheels was specially designed for this giant stone to be ferried from Khammam in Telangana to National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) in New Delhi, covering a distance of 1,665 km.
