"Think, there was a time when India was about to achieve Independence that the Britishers felt that when they leave, the country would crumble. This country will not be left. But Vallabhai Patel decided to bring the legacy of the country together, and have to make one country," he added. 

Elaborating on this aspect, PM Modi gave the example of Kutch earthquake of 2001, Kedarnath floods of 2013 and the India-Pakistan war of 1965. 
 
He said, "I have seen this with my own eyes with there was an earthquake in Kutch in 2001, that was the biggest quake, people used to say it won't stand up again. But today, it has not only stood up but is also one of the fastest growing district."

"5-6 years earlier what was the situation in Kedarnath? It was said that pilgrims won't be able to go to Kedarnath now. But now, there are more pilgrims now than before. The people of our country love gold as much as they love themselves. Our thought is that we must have gold at home, but when we had the war of 1965, people gave away their gold," he added.
