There has been a widespread conflict in society when these monuments are built, someone says that spending so much on idols can be done on poor people. But if we look at it carefully, then it will come to understand that thousands of workers are required to make these idols and they get employment. Not only the workers, but Murthy’s terrain also becomes a tourist destination, and people get more employment from this area. Also, the effect of tourism is on the country’s GDP and our tourism will grow from such monuments and statues.
