The proposed statue of Lord Ram in Ayodhya will now get taller, in fact it will be the tallest in the country. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adittyanath said the statue would be 251 metres tall and would be installed on an 100 acre site.

This was decided at a meeting held in Lucknow late on Monday. The Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat is 183 metres tall. An Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will be signed with the Gujarat government for technical assistance.

Adityanath has said that a plan should be prepared for overall development of Ayodhya, too. “There should be arrangements for basic tourist facilities along with the digital museum, interpretation centre, library, parking, food plaza, landscaping based on the theme of Lord Shri Ram,” he stated.

The 251-metre Lord Ram statue will be the world’s tallest. The Statue of Liberty in New York is 93 metres, Dr BR Ambedkar’s statue in Mumbai is 137.2 metres, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s in Gujarat is 183 meters, Gautam Buddha’s statue in China is 208 meters and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s statue in Mumbai is 212 meters.

In a bid to make daily commute safer for women in India, ride hailing giant Uber on Friday launched a new campaign for Uber Auto, which also aims to empower riders with seamless shared mobility solutions.

The company also launched an Uber Moto campaign for youth with convenient doorstep pickup to help them save time from arduous commute and use that time to up-skill themselves.

“At Uber, we’re committed to simplifying the lives of our riders by addressing their everyday challenges through multi-modal mobility solutions,” Manisha Lath Gupta-Marketing Director, Uber India and South Asia, told IANS.

“We believe that our youth have immense potential, however, lack of safe and reliable commuting options often limits their aspirations. In a small yet meaningful way, we are delighted to support the aspirations of millions of men and women to move forward,” Gupta added.

Targeted primarily at women commuters, the cab hailing giant’s Auto campaign, titled “Badey Iradon Ki Chhoti Sawaari,” aims to provide women safe, reliable yet affordable travel options, thus, enabling them to fulfil their aspirations.

Instead of being dependent on friends and family for picking and dropping them, or standing on roads waiting to find a reliable mode of transport, Uber Auto allows women to step out whenever they need to.

The company’s Moto campaign, titled “Sapno Par Hoja Sawaar” aims to inspire the young working professionals whose aspirations get dampened because they spend long hours commuting and have to change multiple modes of transport to find the most economical option.

Both the campaigns would be seen across digital, print and out-of-home advertising (OOH) platforms, said Uber. (IANS)
