Gifts, mementos presented to PM Narendra Modi to be auctioned, proceeds to go for Clean Ganga Project

The physical auction will take place between 27th and 28th January, and the remaining items will go for e-auction

All the gifts and mementoes that Prime Miniter Narendra Modi has received so far will be put for auction at National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi. Union culture minister Mahesh Sharma has said that the money received from the auction will be used by the government to fund projects like Clean Ganga Project.

All the items can be viewed at the portal PM Mementos. The basic reserve price for the items ranges from a few hundred to few thousands of Rupees. More than 1800 items, which includes paintings, sculptures, shawls, pagris, jackets and traditional musical instruments from across the country, will go under the hammer. The physical auction will take place between 27th and 28th January. The remaining items will go for e-auction after the physical auction.

All the gifts and mementoes received by PM Modi are maintained by the National Gallery of Modern Art, an undertaking of the Ministry of culture. They had organized an exhibition of all the items last year in October.

“We have proposed to have an auction of the gift items presented to our Prime Minister by the various individuals and organisations in the country. The money collected will go for a noble cause. Our plan is to have the auction within the next 10-15 days.” Minister of Culture Mahesh Sharma was quoted by reports.

Since PM Modi was elected to office, he has put great efforts in the Clean Ganga Project. In December last year, it was reported that there is a marked improvement in the level of dissolved oxygen in the river in more than a decade. The experts had also asserted that along with dissolved oxygen, even pH amount has reached satisfactory levels.
