India inaugurates world's tallest statue

India inaugurated on Wednesday the world’s tallest statue. The "Statue of Unity" is 182-meter long, made of steel and bronze, Reuters reported.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi explained that the statue which is effigy of independence hero Vallabhbhai Patel comes amid efforts to belittle the efforts of the hero who helped unite the Indian states.

The statue was built in less than three years using 25 thousand tons of steel and 1.7 thousand tons of bronze. It was funded by the federal government, besides state-run companies and other institutions.
