Exactly 100 years ago, January 5, 1917, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel entered public life and began his political career after he won his first municipal bye-election from Dariyapur ward of Ahmedabad --defeating his closest rival by just one vote. From that day on, Sardar never looked back. ‘The Boss’ as he was once called by Time magazine, went on to become the municipal president in February 9, 1924 and led the municipality till 13, April 1928. Today we celebrate this occasion at Gandhi Hall at the municipal corporation heritage building at 5.30 pm. Come to witness the general board hall and the same chair that Sardar once sat on to lead the civic life of its citizens.
