New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday paid rich tributes to the soldiers who lost their lives defending India during the 1999 war in Kargil.
“The bravery of the soldiers motivates us every single day,” the prime minister tweeted as he remembered the brave sacrifices of the soldiers on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas.
Modi also shared an excerpt from last year’s Mann Ki Baat – a monthly radio programme addressed by him on the last Sunday of every month.
According to the Indian Army officials, President Ram Nath Kovind will lay a wreath at the Baramulla War Memorial in north Kashmir.
The Kargil War was fought between India and Pakistan from May to July 1999 in the Kargil district of Kashmir along the Line of Control (LoC).
July 26 is observed as ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ to commemorate India’s victory.
