I am ready to negotiate Gandhi's more items with Indian govt: James Otis

By Super Admin

Dharamsala, Mar 29 (ANI): James Otis, the US based collector and auctioneer of Mahatma Gandhi's personal belongings, has claimed that he had more items of the father of the nation including his blood sample, which he was ready to negotiate with the Indian Government.

"I have other personal belongings of Mahatma Gandhi like the original of the 'Harijan' journal, cotton clothes spun by him and his blood samples. I am ready to negotiate these items with the Indian Government," Otis said.

He had come here to meet the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

He claimed that he had about 400 photographs of Gandhi collected from all over the world.

The 45-year-old Otis sparked a row by putting up for auction Gandhi's personal belongings earlier this month.

Business tycoon Vijay Mallya bought Mahatma Gandhi's five personal objects, including the iconic round eyeglasses, for 1.8 million dollars in a New York auction. (ANI)
