Philanthropist to buy Gandhi's house in S Africa

City-based businessman Pradeep Bhavnani, in a letter to President Pratibha Patil, has requested her to give him the permission through the official channel for transferring money to the owner of the house in order to finalise the deal.

Bhavnani said he would donate the house to the government so that it could be preserved as a museum or a memorial as a tribute to the nation. “The buyer has accepted my offer of Rs 2.5 crore for the house. I now look upon the government to grant me official permission,” Bhavnani said.
