At a time when the people of Seemandhra are blaming Congress president Sonia Gandhi for the division of state, former minister P Shankar Rao has commissioned Vijayawada-based national award winning sculptor Prasad for making a statue of Sonia Gandhi.

It may be recalled that Shankar Rao wants to construct a temple for Sonia for giving Telangana state. The 7-foot bronze statue will be erected at the proposed Sonia Gandhi Shanti Vanam in Kotur mandal of Mahbubnagar district.

The work is expected to be completed in 45 days.
