Ahmedabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday accused the Congress of disowning Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, saying it was adopting a “slave mentality” after collaborating with the British before independence. He was speaking at a campaign rally in the town of Sojitra in Anand district of Gujarat, where a vote will be held on December 5 in the second phase of the state assembly elections. “The Congress has a problem not only with Sardar Patel but also with the unity of India. because their politics is based on the policy of divide and conquer while Patel believed in uniting everyone. Due to this major difference, the Congress has Sardar Patel never considered their property,” the prime minister said. The congress’s “policy” of pitting one community, caste or religion against another weakened Gujarat, Modi said. “Congressmen had worked with the British for a number of years (before independence). As a result, the party adopted all the bad habits of the British, such as this policy of divide and rule and the slave mentality,” he added.

The opposition party leaders are avoiding visiting the Statue of Unity, Patel’s statue and memorial in Narmada district, he claimed. “Just because the statue was built by Modi, did Patel become untouchable to you? I am sure the people of Anand district will punish Congress for insulting Sardar Patel,” the prime minister added.
