Water can be seen on the floor inside the viewer gallery of the Statue of Unity
According to tourists uploading videos to social media, Rainwater was poured in the observation gallery inside the Statue of Unity in Gujarat. Rs. A video of water from a water source of water and water dots from the statue of Rs 3,000 crore criticized many people, who described the incident as "unfortunate".
The statue of 182-meter, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel of the freedom fighter is the longest structure in the world and it was inaugurated with many fans last year.
"We had a lot of hope for seeing the tallest statue in the world, but we felt bad at seeing the statue in the rain, it did not produce heavy rains, and already the main hall and the gallery of gallery is full of water, it is unfortunate," said a news agency. PTI said.
Narmada Collector Ik Patel, who is the Chief Executive of Murthy, said that it was "natural" for the water going to the viewing gallery and added that there was a channel to get more water.
"A visual gallery is open on the movie's chest, covered by glass on the back side of the gallery, the front view is open according to the design, so it is natural that the water will enter when it rains." .
"There is a channel for disposal of rain water, but when the wind speed is high there is a lot of water and the house-care workers carry it out constantly."
A tweet from the official Twitter handle of the Statue of Unity says the incident is being carried out immediately by the "maintenance team".
Rain water has been blown up by high winds in the viewing gallery. By design it is kept open for a good view, which tourists can enjoy. Water consolidation is being done immediately by the maintenance team. @PMOIndia@CMOGuj@drrajivguptaias
