Addressing Gujarat Gaurav rally in Surat district, Singh also said that had Sardar Patel not been there, people would not have been able to see the political unity in the country.
"Had then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru given free hand to Sardar Patel to merge Jammu and Kashmir with Indian Union like Hyderabad and Junagarh then today we would not have been facing Kashmir issue," said Singh, adding that "Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) would also have become part of the Indian Union".
Singh said that apart from internal security concerns, as a home minister if he is concerned about a subject then it is Kashmir issue.
But, he assured countrymen that "nobody should worry about Kashmir problem as ultimately it would be resolved as no power in the world can stop us".
Talking about Pakistan, the Home Minister said that "though its name is Pak (pure), its deeds are naapak (impure). It always tries to disintegrate India, sends terrorists from its soil to India to kill India's sons".
"It seems Pakistan is unaware that circumstances have changed in India and Congress is not ruling India but Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is a son of a Gujarati mother, is heading the country," said Singh.
The Home Minister also reiterated that National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government at the Centre has given free hand to security forces to deal with the terrorists.
He highlighted the importance of Bardoli and said that "It is the land of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and he had started farmers' movement in 1927-28 from Bardoli itself. And, that movement gave him the title of 'Sardar' across India".
