The Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) celebrated ‘Rashtriya Ekta Diwas’ or National Unity Day on October 31, 2019. On this occasion, all OFB employees took a pledge to maintain national integrity for withstanding actual and potential threats to the unity and security of our country.
A ‘Run for Unity’ rally was organized in the morning and was flagged off by Saurabh Kumar, DGOF and Chairman of OFB, as a tribute to the vision of a strong and united India that was espoused by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the Iron Man of India.
Since 2014, the Narendra Modi-led government has been celebrating Sardar Patel’s birth anniversary as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas. Loh Purush Vallabhbhai Jhaverbhai Patel was the founding father of the Republic of India, who played a crucial role in the stitching together of independent provinces of India into one allied nation.
