PM Modi on Thursday, September 8, unveiled the statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose near India Gate and paid floral tributes to him on Kartavya Path.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday unveiled the historic Netaji statue on Kartavya Path. It was housed in the India Gate canopy. The jet black granite statue has been carved from a monolithic block of granite weighing 280 MT. The installation work was underway on Wednesday on the eve of its unveiling.
The statue was installed at the same place where a ‘hologram statue’ of Netaji was unveiled earlier this year on Parakram Diwas (January 23) by the Prime Minister to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Bose. The towering statue of Netaji is “one of the tallest, realistic, monolithic, handmade sculptures in India”. PM Modi had on January 21 assured that a grand statue of Netaji made of granite will be installed at India Gate as a symbol of the nation’s “indebtedness” to him.
