Jalandhar Remembers Sardar Patel on His 135 th Birth Anniversary

Jalandhar Citizens paid rich tributes to the Bismarck of India Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel , the first Deputy Prime Minister of India.

Sardar Patel unified the entire country by merger of the numerous Princely states. Had Sardar 's views prevailed there would not have been any Kashmir problem and India would not have surrendered abjectly in Tibet. With Tibet existing as an independent nation , there would not have been any hostile Chinese neighborhood. Sardar Patel had warned Nehru against the Chinese designs on Tibet and the repercussions it would have on India.

Separatists and Pro Pakistan politicians  in Kashmir valley would have been very effectively dealt with by Sardar Patel

Sardar  Patel placed the interests of his country above every thing . He did not encourage his children to interfere in state matters and , he did not leave behind a dynasty.He was the true " Iron Man of India ) and after Mahatma Gandhi , Gujarat 's ( then Bombay Presidency ) biggest  gift to India.
