New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he was happy to see former PM HD Deve Gowda at the Statue of Unity in Gujarat, billed as the tallest in the world.
The 182-metre-tall statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel — built at a cost of Rs 2,989 crore — was inaugurated by PM Modi in October 2018.
