Shivamogga: BJP state BJP Yuva Morcha vice president Hrishikesh Pai said here on Saturday that prime minister Narendra Modi would be unveiling the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, in Gorta (B) village in Bidar district.
The foundation stone for the statue had been laid by BJP national president Amit Shah last year. The unveiling ceremony was scheduled to be on September 17. But the day would be Ganesh Chaturthi and hence the event has been held over to a later date.
The state unit of Yuva Morcha is elated that it would be the very first of its programmes with Modi participating in it.
