Besides, prime minister Modi will also unveil 108 feet tall statue of Nadaprabhu Kempegowda – the founder of Bengaluru city in Devanahali, Bengaluru.
Kempegowda is known for his major contribution to the development of Bengaluru. He built the city of Bengaluru and thus the statue has been named the Statue of Prosperity.
“This statute has been made to strive for the continuous development of the state. The signs of good days for Karnataka are seen in this statue. It would give the confidence of building ‘Nava Bharath ‘ (New Bharat) through ‘Navakarnataka’ (New Karnataka),” Bommai stated.

“The future will be dull if we forget the history and we must show respect to the kings who built this state. Buddha, Basavanna, and Mahaveera were administrators but reformed for people’s welfare through spirituality. But Kempegowda stayed amidst the people and built the lives of people,” he stated.
The Chief Minister stated intending to make the life and achievements of Kempegowda the source of inspiration for the people, and the sacred mud from all over the State is being brought to mix in the statue
“The idea behind this is to ensure that his inspiration is found in very minute particles. While America’s Statue of Liberty symbolizes liberty, the Statue of Unity (in Gujarat) marks unity, the statue of prosperity (here) is the mark of prosperity,” he stated.
Prime minister Narendra Modi will also launch Vande Bharat (Chennai-Mysuru-Bengaluru) train from SBC railway station. The special high-speed train was a long pending demand of the people of Karnataka state. It will be South India’s 1st ‘Vande Bharat Express train.
