Lt Gen KJ Singh said this was a war that was probably fought for the first time at such a high altitude in the history of the world and it was a war where the enemy was sitting on top and hit-ting our army easily.
Young officers and sol-diers of the army of our country were martyred, whose age ranged from 19 to 23 years.
Before the Kargil War, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee made many efforts to improve relations with Pakistan.
But Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf’s nefarious intentions came to light when some of our Gujjars and locals at Kargil, often vacant places, saw and informed the antics of the enemy army.
By then, the enemy had placed his army at the top and planned to separate Ladakh and Siachen from India.
The Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee gave a free hand to the army to give a befitting reply to the Pak-istanis and the soldiers of our army showed their bravery
This was not an ordinary war. It was difficult to guess the strength of the enemy sitting above and the enemy had to be pushed out of their range in this war without crossing the other LOC.
In the Kargil conflict, India relied on other coun-tries for weapons, gunpow-der, radar and satellite images.
Today, India is ready to give a befitting reply to any choice. It would be the mis-take of China to take it light-ly.
The present Prime Minister Narendra Modi has increased the morale of our soldiers by reaching Ladakh.
Under his leadership, the country is moving forward on the path of development.
The current Modi govern-ment is engaged day and night to fulfill every need on our borders.
Today, in every weather, Indian soldiers are better able to compete with the enemy in any area.
Today, on the initiative of the Modi government, 136 Rafale, 12 new Sukhoi-30s in the army as well as 21 new MiG-29 fighter aircraft will join the Air Force fleet, the air power will definitely be on the seventh sky.
He stated that now what Prime Minister Narendra Modi is doing, we also have a moral duty to do some-thing for the country and society.
We ourselves should also become aware and at the same time make others aware and build a civil war-rior.
At the same time, he said that we should boycott all goods made from China, only then our country will grow more indigenous and our country will become self-sufficient.
