The Governor said that there was a feeling in the mind of the British that give them freedom but Akhand Bharat will not be made, because the kings and princes of 562 princely states are not going to give up their rule. But the personality and influence of Sardar Patel was such that gradually the kings and princes of all the princely states obeyed him and realized the dream of Akhand Bharat.
