The chief minister further said, “Keeping in mind the values and ideals of ‘Iron Man’ Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the MP from Kashi, the Prime Minister inaugurated the world’s largest statue on the banks of the Narmada River in Gujarat, near the Sardar Sarovar Dam. Presently, it has become a pilgrimage site. The values and ideals of Sardar Patel inspire us all with a new motivation.”
