October 31, the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel, is celebrated as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas every year since 2014, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision and vision of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’.
In the past eight years, it has gained wide acceptance and the day has now become established at par with other important national celebrations such as Independence Day and Republic Day. Such has been the scale of its impact that the tradition of celebration of the day by the PM has become cast in stone — one which all future Prime Ministers would not want to miss out on.
The official celebrations in which the PM participates take place at the Statue of Unity, which was dedicated to the nation by the PM in 2018 on Rashtriya Ekta Diwas. So closely integrated are the location and the celebration of the day that this association has developed as much recall value as Kartavya Path for Republic Day and Red Fort for Independence Day.
This year, too, the PM will participate in the Rashtriya Ekta Diwas celebrations that will take place at the Statue of Unity.
