A grand event has been planned to mark the first anniversary of the Statue of Unity. The world’s tallest statue will complete one year of its inauguration in October this year. The government has planned to inaugurate or start 30 peripheral projects associated with the Statue of Unity and on the anniversary occasion of the monument, PM Modi will be performing the foundation or inauguration ceremony for the launch of these projects.

The state administration and its various departments are making constant efforts and working day night to complete the list. Projects like Ekta Mall, a butterfly park, a nutrition park, a mirror maze, several state Bhavans, Shreshth Bharat Bhavan, a safari park, a tent city and a tribal museum are few among the 30 that were planned. It is being speculated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be laying the foundation stone for an upcoming aerodrome terminal at Pond 3 of the Narmada dam premises. The state government has also allocated as much as Rs 5 crore in the budget this week for the same aerodrome project.

New tenders have been issued by the authorities for the reinitiation of the helicopter service that allowed the tourists to take an aerial ride around the Statue and the Dam for Rs 2,900 per head. Earlier, the service got suspended as the contractor pulled out to catch the demands of the general elections earlier in April-May.
