Hon'ble Deputy Prime Minister visit to United State of Travancore and Cochin. On Launch with H.H. the Rajpramukh of Travancore & Cochin while going to Bolgatty palace on May 12, 1950.

It is hardly possible to exaggerate the work done by Sardar Patel for the achievement of Indian freedom and even more for its consolidation. In the fateful years of 1947 to 1950, it was his strong will that maintained the peace of India, integrated the States and got the Constitution successfully through the Constituent Assembly.

I therefore feel it a high privilege to send my respectful homage to the great nation builder.
