The brave martyrs of 1999 were saluted on Sunday by the entire nation. It is a proud moment for the entire India.
21st anniversary of the Kargil Diwas was celebrated across the nation. The day marks the fearlessness, willpower and outstanding valour of our soldiers, according to President Ram Nath Kovind.
Rajnath Singh laid emphasis on the fact that we are ready to go all out to ensure the sovereignty and security of our nation.
Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee had once stated that Kargil is a symbol of our self-respect and a step against prejudice. According to Rajnath Singh, all that which is done in the name of national security is self-defense and not assault.
The sentiment remains the same even today, after 21 yrs. India is a peace loving nation, but we do not hold ourselves back in order to maintain peace and stability in the country, he further added.
‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ is a sign of India’s unwavering leadership, proud and valour.
On Sunday Union Home Minister Amit Shah saluted the grit and valour of our brave soldiers. Shah tweeted that it is immensely proud of the brave hearts and bow to the soldiers. Their indomitable courage played a crucial role in driving the enemies away from the inaccessible Kargil hills.
A video was released by the Indian Army to mark the occasion.
