It is believed that it was PM Modi's dream project. The company Larsen & Toubro (L&T) won the bid to become the principal contractor for the reconstruction. It's the same firm that had designed the Melbourne stadium. Larsen & Toubro won the bid because they were financially lowest and technically very correct in their plan.
