With a towering height of 70 feet, the world’s tallest statute of Mahatma Gandhi was on Friday unveiled in Bihar.

‘Bapu’ is seen standing affectionately with two children on either side in the bronze statue constructed at the historic Gandhi Maidan here.

Funded by the state government, the Rs 10 crore statue, inclusive of a 30-feet-high pedestal, has been built by Delhi-based sculptor Ramsutar and Sons.

With this, the Parliament statue in New Delhi where the ‘Father of the Nation’ is in a meditating pose, becomes the second tallest Gandhi statue with a height of 16 feet.

Stating that is a small tribute to the great leader, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said his mantra of non-violence will motivate the weaker sections to seek their rights in a peaceful manner, but with persistence.

“The tallest leader of our country and flag bearer of world peace will continue to inspire youths for generations,” he said after unveiling the statue at a function.

Plaques have been added to the statute recalling various movements led by Gandhi during the freedom struggle.

Some valuable Gandhi quotes have also been written on the plaques to remind people about the message ‘Bapu’ gave during his lifetime.

Sculptor Anil, who runs ‘Ramsutar Arts Pvt Ltd’, said the statue, showcasing Gandhi with a smiling look, will spread the message of world peace and motivate all to bridge the divide between the rich and poor.
