Chandigarh : Jammu Kashmir Study Centre Chandigarh Chapter and Rajiv Gandhi National Youth Institute of Development today organized a Program for paying Homage to Kargil War Heroes and other Martyrs at RGNYID Regional Centre Chandigarh Campus.
As mentioned by Stanzin Dawa and Vivek Chauhan today 17 years are passed since Kargil war occurred but still negligence is going on. This point is deeply hurting the Martyrs family members. Family Members of Kargil Martyrs still waiting from Government that Vijay Divas is Officially Celebrated by Government. As per their believe still Only Army is celebrating the Kargil Vijay Divas and none of state government is organizing any public function on occasion of Kargil Vijay Divas. Even Public did not participate in largely number in celebration of Vijay Divas all over India. Only serving or retired Army Officers attending these Vijay Divas Programs.
That’s why JKSC and RGNYID Joins hands together to Celebrate Kargil Vijay Divas with Public and Students so that everyone knows about the History of War and difficulties faced by the brave army men during the Kargil War. On this occasion a Special screening of Short Movie provided by Kargil War Memorial Dras Officials was shown to the gathering and after watching the movie the gathering feelings like they are at Kargil war Memorial. After watching the Movie the gathering got the information that in Operation Vijay during Kargil war 527 Jawans, JCOs and Officers of the Indian Army laid down their lives for the Nation. The war was fought at heights over 18K feet, inhospitable rugged terrain, steep mountains, 4 PVCs, 9 MVCs,55 VrCs,Tiger Hill, Tololing Peak, Pts 4875, 4590. To name a few the likes of Capts Vikram Batra, Manoj Pandey, Rajesh Adhikari etc. made the supreme sacrifice at young age of 23.
It hoped that Government will consider celebrating Vijay Divas officially with Public representative’s representation in all States.
