New Delhi: The Uttarakhand government constructing memorial statue of the deceased police horse 'Shaktiman' has not gone down well with the general public on social media.

A day after the 'Shaktiman Park' was inaugurated by Chief Minister Harish Rawat, a memorial statue of 'Shaktiman' was removed from Vidhan Sabha Marg after people protested on social media that a horse was being given more importance than martyred policemen.

The state government immediately removed the statue of the police horse who was fatally maimed by alleged-accused BJP MP Ganesh Joshi during a BJP rally in Uttarakhand.
