Canopy at India Gate lying empty now for decades ever since statue of an erstwhile British ruler King George was removed from this place looks very odd to large number of foreign and Indian visitors coming to India. Union government should stall a statue of Sardar Patel at empty canopy at India Gate, also because both Congress and BJP are unanimous in respect for Sardar Patel.
It may be recalled that the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modi (now Prime Minister) once shared a common platform with both claiming on legacy of Sardar Patel. There have been rare instances when both ruling party and main opposition-party are united on an aspect like for respect to India’s binding iron-man.
