“One should understand how India attained Independence and the challenges faced by our country after being freed from the British Rule. It was Sardar Patel who visualised the significance of a special force in independent India and conceptualised the CRPF. We are conducting the bike rally in memory of Sardar Patel who is considered the founder of CRPF,” CRPF IG told media.
The Central government has planned an elaborate programme involving paramilitary forces in all districts of the country to mark the birth anniversary of ‘Iron Man of India’ on October 31 which is celebrated as National Unity Day or Rashtriya Ekta Diwas since 2014.
