Haryana to commemorate birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel

Haryana Government has decided to commemorate the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the Iron Man of India, on October 31 as ‘Rashtriya Ekta Diwas’, the National Unity Day.
In a letter issued today by Haryana Personnel Department to all the Administrative Secretaries, Heads of the Departments, Divisional Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners states that the Government has decided that all schools, colleges and universities in all the districts of the state would celebrate the occasion in a befitting manner. Also, "Rashtriya Ekta Diwas" pledge would be administered at functions organised to mark the occasion. It has also been decided to associate Ministers and MLAs with this programme for making it more effective. The Rashtriya Ekta Diwas Pledge states "I solemnly pledge that I dedicate myself to preserve the unity, integrity and security of the nation and also strive hard to spread this message among my fellow countrymen. I take this pledge in the spirit of unification of my country which was made possible by the vision and actions of Late Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. I also solemnly resolve to make my own contribution to ensure internal security of my country".
He said that the government wants to create awareness about the contribution of Sardar Patel during India’s Independence Movement and towards ensuring national integration in India. He said Sardar Patel was instrumental in merger of princely states to create a modern India, just after independence. The government has decided to make ‘Rashtriya Ekta Divas’ a popular mass movement, inviting voluntary participation from all sections of the society.
It may be recalled that Vallabhbhai Patel was born on October 31, 1875 at Karamsand in Gujarat. A barrister with a successful law practice, Vallabhbhai Patel joined the Indian National Movement under Mahatma Gandhi and grew up to become one of its tallest leaders. He played key leadership roles in organizing peasants’ movement in Kheda, Borsad and Bardoli in Gujarat and promoting the Quit India Movement against the British Raj. The credit for the integration of over 500 independent princely states in 1947-49 by their merger from what was then a divided India to make it what it is today is due solely to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
