Indian PM To Unveil World's Tallest Statue

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unveil the world's tallest statue next month in western state of Gujarat, officials said.

The statue has been constructed to honor the country's first Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

"The Statue of Unity will be inaugurated by Modi on Oct. 31," Gujarat's Chief Minister Vijay Rupani told reporters on Sunday on the sidelines of the two-day Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive meeting in New Delhi.

The Statue of Unity, which is 182 meters from the ground and 240 meters from the river base of Narmada, has been completed, officials said.
