New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday unveiled a 108 ft statue of Lord Hanuman in Gujarat's Morbi via video conferencing. The inauguration comes as Hindu devotees across the world celebrate Hanuman Jayanti today. Addressing the event, PM Modi said: "We have been seeing a similar grand Hanuman statue in Shimla for years now. The second has been established in Morbi today. I have been told that two more statues will be established in Rameswaram and West Bengal." "Hanuman ji connects everyone with his devotion, by his service. Everyone gets inspiration from Hanuman Ji. Lord Hanuman is the source of strength that gave all forest brethren their right to respect. Therefore, Hanuman ji is an important part of Ek Bharat, Shresta Bharat," he added in the virtual address.
