The country would not have faced the many problems it is confronted with today had Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel been made India’s first prime minister, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said here on Monday.
Addressing students of the Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, Shah also said the Modi government has worked to deepen constitutional and democratic values, and has strengthened the security of the country so no one can now dare cast an evil eye on India’s borders.
“Never leave your language. Learn all other languages from around the world but don’t leave your native language. Language is a form of expression and not of your intelligence. No one should have inferiority complex in not knowing English. You will have to keep your mother tongue alive,” he told the gathering which also included teachers and guardians.
