It’s an action-packed birthday for Prime Minister Narendra Modi who first inaugurated Sardar Sarovar — India’s tallest and world’s second largest dam — across the Narmada River in Kevadia, then addressed supporters at Narmada Mahotsav in Dabhoi, Gujarat. The PM also found time to visit Sadhu Bet, an island in the Narmada River where a 182-metre tall statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, called 'Statue of Unity', is coming up. He is now headed to Amreli in Saurashtra where he will address a public gathering. The BJP, too, is marking PM Modi’s 67th birthday, celebrating it as Seva Diwas across the country.
