Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is considered as one of the founding fathers of the Republic of India. From his early childhood, Patel fought against injustice and considered duty as his religion. He entered into politics to serve the common men and soon became popular due to his honesty and dedication. He also tried his best to eradicate the problems of peasants. Becoming the President of Indian National Congress, he played a leading role in country's Struggle for Independence and was arrested very often. After independence, he became the first Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of India and guided its integration into a united, independent nation. In the honour of the 'Iron Man of India' – Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Gujarat government is going to build the 'Statue of Unity' at Sadhu Bet, a few miles away from the Sardar Sarovar Dam on the riverbed of Narmada. This will be the world's tallest statue and a tribute to the great patriot and architect of modern India.
