On the Rahul Gandhi's remark to the Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel statute  (in construction) the  BJP president Mr. Amit Shah had said that Rahul Gandhi and his family has humiliated Sardar Patel and unsuccessfully tried to erase his legacy from people's hearts and minds. By his twitter post, he remarked that “At a time when India is uniting to pay tributes to Sardar Patel by building a grand 'Statue of Unity' the Congress president is spreading canards to discredit the project. Shame! ". He further added that "Your lie on the ‘Statue of Unity’ is another display of your visceral hatred towards Sardar Patel". The Congress president Mr. Rahul Gandhi while addressing a rally in Madhya Pradesh has reportedly stated that “the Prime Minister was building the world’s tallest statue, but he was insulting Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel because his statue will have the label of ‘made in China’ and not ‘made in India’ ”.

The 184-meter figurine of freedom fighter Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, known as the 'Statue of Unity' is a monument under construction dedicated to Indian Independence Movement leader and Indian first home minister Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel. The said project had been initiated five years ago by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi who was then the chief minister of Gujarat. The project is now almost complete and will be inaugurated on October 31, 2018, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel's 143rd birth anniversary.
