However, senior government officials from Ahmedabad administration have reportedly stated that the wall was not built to conceal the slums but for security reasons and also a part of the beautification and cleanliness drive. Authorities have also served eviction notices to 45 families living in another slum area near Motera Stadium where the grand event Namaste Trump will be held. The officials have reportedly stated that the land belongs to civic body and evictions were done within the jurisdiction of the law. The opposition including Congress has argued why the slums still exist despite PM Modi being former Chief Minister of Gujarat for 12 years and has been the prime minister of the nation for 6 years.
