According to sources Congress leader Shashi Tharoor wanted to know why BJP had not built a bigger statue for Mahatma Gandhi while they erected a 182 metre statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, his disciple. Meanwhile when addressing a function at the district Congress committee office in Thiruvananthapuram, the Congress leader said there was no such gigantic statue of Mahatma Gandhi in the country.
He asked "The biggest one is in Parliament. But this is a 182 metre statue for his disciple. Why is there such a big statue for a disciple of Gandhiji in the country where there is no statue of that size for the Mahatma?". Reports added "Patel, a very simple person, was known as the disciple of Gandhiji," Tharoor said. Meanwhile he also alleged that BJP was trying to "hijack" the legacy of freedom fighters and national heroes like Patel as they have no leaders of their own in history to celebrate.
Tharoor said "Patel had worked along with Gandhiji and strengthened the Congress party. We should remember him always”. Moreover Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday inaugurated an imposing 182 metre statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the world's tallest, on an islet Sadhu Bet near Sardar Sarovar Dam in Gujarat's Narmada district.
