His first notable campaign started when he fought for the farmers of Kheda. It was he who fetched justice for the helpless farmers, who had been oppressed due to unjust policies of The British. He futhur fought for the justice of farmers of the Other places like Bardoli and Borsad. During his struggle, he kept supporting Mahatma Gandhi’s efforts. Once India got freedom, his role widened. He was entrusted with the task of uniting the whole India by convincing more than 500 princely states who were not the part of India in 1947. It was an uphill task. Buf he skillfully brought together the fragments of India to give a united shape. Today if India’s expanse is vast from North to South and East to West, full credit goes to this Iron man.
