“India can never forget the circumstances under which the battle of Kargil took place. Pakistan had embarked upon this misadventure, nursing delusions of encroaching upon Indian soil, to distract attention from internal strife prevailing there,” the PM said reminding the nation of what Atal Bihari Vajpayee had said during the Kargil war. “What Atal Ji had said from Red Fort during the Kargil War is relevant to all of us even today. Atal Ji, had then reminded the nation of a mantra of Gandhi Ji.,” PM Modi said.
“Whatever we say or do has immense bearing on the morale of the soldier, ever vigilant at the border, as well as the morale of his family,” Modi said.
