Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated a humongous statue, whose controversial construction displaced the local community and cost millions of dollars.

Modi on Wednesday inaugurated the reportedly tallest statue in the world, a 182-meter figure of Indian political figure, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
