Mahatma Gandhi Bapu’s statue has been sitting in the store for ten years, accumulating dust.

Jammu. The statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the country’s freedom-giver, has been in place in the ancient Mubarak Mandi for years and hasn’t been taken out of the Archaeological Department’s store even ten years later. Even now, the statue is sitting in the shop collecting dust. The department has not made the decision to restore it.

The historical Mubarak Mandi’s Darbar-e-Aam now houses the statue of the nation’s founding father. Maharaja Hari Singh was anointed king in this Darbar-e-Aam, where he also frequently met with his subjects to discuss their issues. After the Mahatma Gandhi statue was erected, this location’s significance grew even further. This used to be the focal point of Gandhi Jayanti celebrations in Jammu. The idol was taken down in the name of renovation, but it has still not been replaced as of this writing. In 2012, the statue was taken down but was unable to be put back up. A demand is made in this regard every year, but no action has been taken.
