Advani praises Modi - again

Kevadia (Gujarat), Oct 31 : Sharing the stage with Narendra Modi, BJP leader L.K. Advani Thursday praised the Gujarat chief minister who has been chosen the party's prime ministerial candidate.

Laying the foundation of a statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Advani said the "Iron Man" was responsible for the unity and integration of the country following the country's 1947 independence.

"That is why, if Modi has pledged to build a huge statue (of Sardar Patel), which will be bigger than the Statue of Liberty, it makes us very happy and proud.

"I complement Modi whom our party has chosen as the prime ministerial candidate. I want to share my pride and happiness (with all of you)."

Advani said when Britain split India in 1947, 565 small and big princely states were given back their sovereignty.

"I believe that if there was not a leader like Sardar (Patel), then India would not just have been divided but disintegrated," he said.
