The PGDM students at Jaipuria School of Business (JSB), along with the members of the faculty and staff, observed the National Unity Day (Rashtriya Ekta Diwas) on 31st October 2018. The National unity day was introduced by the Govt. of India and was inaugurated by Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi in 2014 to pay tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on his birthday. Sardar Patel was instrumental in keeping India united and was one of the founding leaders of the Republic of India.
On the occasion, the final year PGDM students at JSB delivered speeches about the Unity Day and about the life and contribution of the Iron Man of India. The birthday of Sardar Patel also coincides with the Vigilance Awareness Week, wherein Sardar Patel had a lot to contribute since he constantly fought against corruption. The students, in their speeches, highlighted Sardar Patel’s contribution towards uniting India and making it corruption free. Sardar Patel is an inspiration for all and the students, on the National Unity Day, pledged to always stay united and fight against the evils prevailing in the society.
