Kargil Vijay Diwas symbol of extraordinary valour of Armed Forces: President Murmu
PRESIDENT Draupadi Murmu on Tuesday said ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ is a symbol of extraordinary valour of the Armed Forces, and people will always be indebted to the brave soldiers who laid down their lives to protect Mother India.
On July 26, 1999, the Indian Army had announced the successful culmination of “Operation Vijay”, declaring victory after a nearly three-month-long battle on the icy heights of Kargil in Ladakh.
“Kargil Vijay Diwas is a symbol of extraordinary bravery, valour of our Armed Forces. I bow to all the brave soldiers who laid down their lives. The country will always be indebted to them and their family members. Jai Hind,” Murmu said in a tweet in Hindi.
