The statue was established by Mao’s followers to commemorate his hardline ideologies with which he ruled China for almost three decades. Millions of death and extreme poverty during that time forced following leaders go on a path of economic reform and turn China into an economic super power. But there is a growing consensus in China that Mao’s ideologies should be brought back and followed diligently for the betterment of China.
