We are a nation that still believes in unity: PM Modi

"But the youth of India respects him and his contribution towards the building of our nation".

Vallabhbhai Patel, the first Deputy Prime Minister of India, was born on October 31, 1875, in Nadiad, a non-descript village in Gujarat. It also includes a coin issued for Sardar Patel in 1996.

A large number of people, including sports personalities like Sardar Singh, Deepa Karmakar, Suresh Raina and Karnam Malleswari participated in the Run.

The 1.5 km run in the national capital came to an end near the India Gate C-Hexagon-Shah Jahan Road radial. The Ministry of Railway has put out hoardings, posters across 100 railway stations displaying Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's work in order to pay tribute to the "Iron Man" of India. "His momentous service and monumental contribution to India can never be forgotten", Modi said while flagging off the run.

Prime Minister Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice-President also paid floral tributes to Sardar Patel.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das took part in the run in Ranchi on National Unity Day and said that Patels will-power and vision had resulted in approximately 550 self- governing princely states merging with the country.

"It is unfortunate that even 70 years after attaining independence, various fissiparous tendencies are raising their ugly heads and attempts are being made to threaten the unity and integrity of the country", he said. India is a country full of diversity and this "Unity in Diversity" makes us special. The event was flagged off by Union Minister Jual Oram.

He said, Sardar Patel used all means and succeeded in uniting all princely states into a single nation within a very small span of time.
