Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah is expected to attend the event.

Follower and supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a retired engineer from the Uttar Pradesh Irrigation Department, J. P. Singh, announced the decision to erect Prime Minister Modi's statue.

Singh said that it will take nearly two years to complete the Modi temple.

When questioned about the motive behind building the statue, Singh said, "I like Prime Minister Modi's policies since decades and because I was still in the job, I was unable to do anything for him." 

Modi, however, would not be the first real-life person to have a temple built in his name. Mahatma Gandhi has a temple to his name in Bhatra, Odisha.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi has one in her name in Telangana while her party’s Kushboo is worshipped in Tiruchirapalli. Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan has one dedicated to him in Kolkata while MGR has one in Chennai.

There have been reports of temples planned in homage to Modi in Rajkot and also for BSP chief Mayawati in Jhansi.
