New Delhi- Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Wednesday that Jana Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mukherjee sacrificed his life to work for one nation, one constitution, one flag, ending permit raj from Kashmir and making it an integral part of India.
Paying tribute to Mukherjee on his birth anniversary, Shah said that the nation will always remain indebted to him for his struggle and sacrifice.
“Dr. Mukherjee was a unique thinker who believed that the basic purpose of power is not to rule, but to work with a dedicated spirit for nation-building. His philosophy of cultural nationalism and the idea of adopting policies according to the original culture of India will always guide us,” the Home Minister said, according to an official spokesperson.
“At one time a permit had to be obtained to enter Jammu and Kashmir. Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee sacrificed his life to work for one nation, one Constitution, one flag, ending permit raj from Kashmir and making it an integral part of India,” he added.
