    BJP forgets Sardar Patel's birth anniversary : North News - India Today

    The BJP never tires of portraying Sardar Patel, whose birth anniversary was observed on Monday, as one of the tallest leaders of India.

    But no senior representative of the party attended the annual function held at Parliament's Central Hall to mark the occasion. Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, the party's leaders in the two Houses too gave it the miss.

    Besides Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Speaker Meira Kumar, a number of Union ministers were present, on the occasion.

    So has our patriot Mamata Bannerjee and she also forgot Indira Gandhi and martyrs Day or whatever the day is called!!

    There were full and half page ads put out by various UPA ministries!

    I wonder how many national schemes have been named after Sardar Patel.

    PS. The ad says martyrdom day, while I believe 31 Oct is known as Anti Terrorism Day!
