Will do best to ensure no harm comes to pride and honour of our jawans: Rajnath Singh

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh Sunday, while addressing a gathering of war veterans, Kargil war widows and others at an event held to commemorate 20 years of Operation Vijay, said that he will do his best to ensure that no harm comes to the pride and honour of the soldiers.

“Whatever we can do to honour our martyrs is less. We honour them and salute the war widows present here. We feel proud of our soldiers. I can only say this from my side that I will do my best and whatever is possible to ensure that no harm comes to the honour, pride and esteem of our jawans,” the defence minister said.

Operation Vijay was the name given to India’s war against Pakistan after the neighbouring country infiltrated in 1999.

“That pride (‘swabhiman’) could be personal, social or nationalistic (‘rashtriya swabhiman’). It was with this sense of pride that 18-year-olds and 20-year-olds had embraced the gallows during the freedom struggle,” Singh said.

“I was told about the extraordinary valour and indomitable and fearless spirit of our soldiers, who climbed high-altitude peaks despite knowing that they could be shot from the above by the enemy. And they eventually got the victory for us in Kargil,” Singh said as he reflected on his visit to the Kargil War Memorial.
