The walkouts followed a New York Times report that the tech giant paid millions of dollars in exit packages to male executives accused of harassment.

The company revealed that it had fired 48 people for sexual harassment over the last two years and that none had received an exit package. Sundar Pichai, Google’s chief executive, and Larry Page, a co-founder of Google and the chief executive of its parent company, Alphabet, apologized.  And one of the executives whom Alphabet continued employing after he was accused of harassment resigned, with no exit package. Many said Google had treated female workers inequitably over time. Others were outraged that Google had paid Andy Rubin, the creator of the Android mobile software, a $90 million exit package even after the company concluded that a harassment claim against him was credible.

The structure is widely seen as the personal project of India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, who first announced it (as Gujarat’s chief minister) in 2010 and who will formally unveil the statue? Although the project is largely funded by Gujarat, Modi’s government offered financial support, with the leader personally calling on farmers across the country to donate iron for its construction. The world’s new tallest statue is nonetheless being painted as a political endeavor.
