Will take forward mantra of unity: PM Modi

New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said diversity is the pride of India and the key to development. In his radio programme Mann Ki Baat on Sunday, Modi recalled Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, whose birth anniversary falls on October 31, and said he made a huge contribution to India's unity. "He had a dream for a united India, and he succeeded in doing that geographically," said Modi.

Against the backdrop of incidents of violence with communal and casteist overtones, the Prime Minister said diversity of religions and castes is the beauty of India and that the 'mantra' of unity should be carried forward through thinking and expressions. "... Peace, harmony and unity... these are the key to development," he said.

Modi said if this diversity was not there, "we would not have been able to feel proud. Therefore, diversity is the mantra of unity." "The mantra of unity should always be the medium of our thinking, our behaviour and expression," Modi said.
