World's largest stadium, Motera stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat has been branded under a new name-Narendra Modi stadium. As soon as the news broke out that the revamped stadium will be named after incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi, netizens had a lot to say about it.

Many are terming the naming of the refurbished stadium after PM Modi narcissistic. Some said since PM Modi is involved in active politics, it is inappropriate to do such a thing.

Others supported the Prime Minister and said that after serving so many years in public office, Modi deserves at least one stadium in his name. Some defended the renaming on the grounds that there have been so many stadiums and airports under the Gandhi family name and it is only right that the stadium is named after PM Modi.

Check out some memes and reactions here:


The stadium was inaugurated by President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday. Home Minister Amit Shah and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, along with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah, were also present at the event.
