It is unfortunate that politics is being played in Sardar Patel’s name,” Rupani said after offering floral tributes to Sardar Patel.In Ahmedabad, former chief minister Anandiben Patel said that Sardar Patel did not get his due because of the Nehru-Gandhi family. Senior Congress MLA Shaktisinh Gohil said, “Some dwarfs are using the Iron Man of India’s name for political gains. If Sardar Saheb had been meted out injustice, as the BJP leaders claim, he would have not shied away from taking on the Congress.”
