Jan 9, 2017: On Sunday, Metroplois has been shut down in an hour by GMDA following the instruction of Himanta Biswa Sarma. He tweeted "Why GMDA allowed Nehru Park for so called winter festival? The park belongs to the children. I will not tolerate atmosphere to be vitiated". It was found that the statue of Jawaharlal Nehru and the Ashok Stambh pillar was covered with advertisements and the place turned into an open field for smoking and drinking. Himanta Biswa Sarma stated that in future no permission will be granted to organize Metropolis in Nehru Park and Shradhanjali Kanan.
