Turned into a Urinal
Gaya, 16 February (Own Correspondent). The former Railway Minister Ramvilas Paswan in a splendid ceremony some months ago inaugurated the beautification of the railway station. Whilst the work on the beautification is the equivalent of nothing [next to nothing has been done] the stone which was laid at the inauguration has nowadays become a urinal.

Hindustan, Patna, Tuesday, 17 February, 1998, p. 3.

[Note:- The stone was visible, and used as in the way the article suggests, to the left of the station entrance in 1998-2000. PGF]
