“The country which forgets history can never create history, so for a country filled with aspirations, a country whose youth has dream, we should not forget our personalities of history…. country should not divide history and legacy according to our ideologies,” Modi said as he addressed the gathering on the occasion of Rashtriya Ekta Diwas– commemorating the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
“Today is the inspiring day when we remember Sardar Patel,” he added.
A ‘Run for Unity’ will mark India’s first home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth anniversary Oct 31.
