On Saturday, I flagged off trucks that will travel across the length and breadth of India as a part of Loha Abhiyan. These trucks will collect both iron and soil that would be used for the Statue of Unity, which would be built on the banks of the Narmada River.
This is an effort to unite India through people's participation. Apart from the iron & soil, nearly 2 crore people will sign a petition when the trucks travel across India’s villages, making it among the world’s longest banner with a message for good governance. Essay competitions have also been organised.
We salute the team of volunteers who are traveling with the trucks, spreading Sardar Patel's message of unity across India http://nm4.in/1eLAh8A
