On 143rd birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhai Patel, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Statue of Unity in Gujarat to honour the freedom fighter and India’s first home minister.
The ‘State of Unity‘ cost the Indian public Rs 3,000 crore. Notably, this statue has been built on the land of tribals, who observed a ‘silent day’ today, to protest the unveiling.
