Even today, Sardar Patel is relevant. He is the symbol of unity and integrity of the country. We need to respond to powers that are working to divide us in the name of racism, caste, creed, etc. On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel who made more than 550 princely states a part of our country, we will take a resolution that we will keep the unity and integrity of the country intact. Chief Minister Raghubar Das was addressing people after participating in the Run for Unity organized on National Unity day in Ranchi. He said we will not let vote bank politics disrupt our unity.
