India unveils the world’s tallest statue

India has unveiled the world’s tallest statue, which cost $430m to build. The 182m high structure in the western state of Gujarat is a bronze-clad tribute to independence leader Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the “statue of unity” would serve as a major tourist attraction. But locals say this is as wastage of public money and that the funds could have been put to better use. Modi, who unveiled the statue at a grand inaugural event, said it is “a symbol of India’s integrity and resolve.” Air Force planes showered flowers on the statue, which was designed by decorated Indian sculptor Ram V Sutar.
