The world’s tallest statue will get a world class station at Kevadiya near the site of the Statue of Unity in Gujarat’s Narmada district, a Railway Ministry official said in Mumbai on Tuesday.
The statue is dedicated to India’s first Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, which was unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October this year.
President Ram Nath Kovind will lay the foundation stone for the Kevadiya railway station, which will be located at a distance of five kms from the imposing structure, on December 15, the Western Railway (WR) official told PTI.
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal will attend the event. Read More
