In another tweet, Mungantiwar said the BJP-led government has sanctioned an Rs 266-crore development plan to refurbish the Sevagram Ashram in Wardha district. Gandhi had stayed at the ashram, 8 km from Wardha city in the Vidarbha region, between mid-1930 and 1940. Mungantiwar said the works to be carried out at the ashram would be of the world-class level.
