‘Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’ is one of the most popular freedom fighter and leader of India. For the freedom of India, Vallabhbhai Patel has contributed a lot. The reason today we all are living today is just because of Shri Vallabhbhai Patel. In the absence of this man, today the situation of the country would be just different. We all would have been living in various small divided countries of India.
In the earlier times of India, when there was no Government, India was governed and ruled by Kings. At the time of Independence, when the question of partition arrised, many Kings refused to have United India and wished to have various countries by the partition of India according to the Kingdoms. The Nizam of Hyderabad strictly refused and was totally against to form one united nation ‘India’.
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel declared to defeat this King by declaring fight against them and their regions in order to form a united nation. Vallabhbhai Patel fought and made every King of India to agree to form a united ‘India’. This contribution of ‘Sardar’ can’t be compared to any of the freedom fighters of India. Many of the fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, etc made India free from the British Rule, but it was this man – ‘Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’ who made this great united ‘India’ possible today.
After Independence, Jawaharlal Nehru became the first Prime Minister of India, but it was Vallabhbhai Patel who was going to become Prime Minister. Due to Mahatma Gandhi’s order and Vallabhbhai Patel’s selflessness, ‘Jawaharlal Nehru’ became first Prime Minister of India.
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is a great Idol for every Indian to follow. His efforts for the country is just beyond the words. Even our present Prime Minister ‘Shri Narendra Modi’ also consider ‘Sardar Patel’ as an idol person. Vallabhbhai Patel is the man behind the Unity of India and this story is just untold.
