He said that the way the truth (about the Pulwama attack in India) has been admitted to the Parliament of the neighboring country, has exposed the real faces of those who politicized the incident.
The Prime Minister further said that 130 crore Indians together honored the COVID19 warriors in the fight against this pandemic.
“The way the country has proved its collective potential during this time is unprecedented,” he added.

“Sardar Patel gave the present shape by unifying the diversity of the country, the power of India by uniting hundreds of princely states of the country. In 2014, we all started celebrating his birthday as a festival of the unity of India,” he added.
The Prime Minister kept saying that the entire nation is paying reverence to Sardar Patel, the Iron Man of the country today.
“The country has also seen the expansion of ‘Yagna’ by Sardar Patel to restore India’s cultural glory by rebuilding Somnath in Ayodhya. Today the nation has seen the Supreme Court’s decision on the Ram temple and is also looking grand Ram temple is being built, “said PM Modi.
PM Modi is on a two-day Gujarat tour, the first time since the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockout in March, to mark the National Unity Day celebrating the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel.
Sardar Patel, who is credited with uniting all 562 princely states of the pre-independent country to build the Republic of India, passed away on December 15, 1950
