BJP leader ready to pay Rs 1.25 lakh for the chair Narendra Modi sat on at Agra rally

According to party sources, BJP MLA Jagan Prasad Garg has so far made the highest bid of Rs 1.25 lakh while others are not far behind with MLA Yogendra Upadhyaya and Ramshankar Katheria, MP from Agra, also making bids over Rs one lakh.

However, the contractor Pramod Upadhyaya who provided the furniture during the rally, a BJP corporator himself, has now refused to part with the chair, the sources said.

The entire affair of BJP leaders making a bid to buy the chair started after a party worker asked the contractor to sell him some of the chairs used in the function.

On being refused, the worker offered to pay Rs 2,000 for the particular chair on which the Gujarat’s chief minister had sat on during his ‘Vijay Shankhnad’ rally here.

The incident influenced other party functionaries as well to quote high prices for the chair, the sources said. Modi had on 21 November addressed a large gathering of supporters at Kothi Meena Bazar ground here.
