PM Narendra Modi had earlier announced that his government would build the world’s tallest statue to pay tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The Prime Minister himself will inaugurate a statue of Sardar Patel (India’s first home minister) on his birth anniversary on October 31.
The Gujarat government has called the statue as the world’s tallest. Indians are waiting for this wonderful moment to celebrate Sardar Patel’s birth anniversary. Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani added that the statue with a massive altitude of 182 metres will be a “symbol of the country’s unity and integrity” and the Gujarat government describe it as “the statue of unity”.
The state CM said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had gathered iron, soil and water from across the nation to effectively use those ingredients in a bid to build the statue in Gujarat, it was an important decision announced by PM Modi in 2013 when he was the at the helm of Gujarat as the chief minister.
Vijay Rupani said the tallest statue will emphasize Sardar Patel’s significant contributions for the nation’s unity. When the Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that his government would build the world’s tallest statue in a bid to pay a huge tribute to Sardar Patel, opposition parties described it as “empty talk” but a change is evident and the project has now been installed with world-class facilities, he said.
He went on to add that the Congress had sidelined Sardar Patel’s works but it was PM Modi who brought him and his works in front of the world. Sardar Patel who was a Congress leader has become an iconic figure for the Bharatiya Janata Party.
