November 01, 2018
Dalit leader and Independent lawmaker, Jignesh Mevani lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter, after the mega inauguration of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's statue on Wednesday in Gujarat's Kevadiya. He said, Sardar Patel united India but the Prime Minister and BJP's "divisive politics will leave a fractured India!" Tribal communities "affected by government's irrationality and failure to uphold their rights have sent a message soaked in blood to PM Modi," tweeted, Mr Mevani.
Local tribal organisations at Kevadiya, where the Statue of Unity has been inaugurated, claimed as many as 75, 000 people have been adversely affected. The Gujarat government said 185 families, who were asked to relocate, have been compensated and allotted 1200 acres of new land.
