Coal India will attempt second time to buy Mahatma Gandhi's Johannesburg house

Union Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal told PTI that we will be going to South Africa to make its second attempt to buy the house of Mahatma Gandhi in Johannesburg, where he had lived for over a year, with the desire to build a memorial there.

Earlier in August 2009, Coal India had made similar attempt to buy the house but that couldnt happened.

Officers and other employees of the 'navratna' company have volunteered to contribute a day's salary each in order to collect money to buy the Gandhi memorabilia and preserve it, he said.
