On the 23 years of the Kargil Vijay Diwas , President Droupadi Murmu in her first tweet 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.

“Kargil Vijay Diwas is a symbol of extraordinary bravery, valour and determination of our armed forces. I bow to all the brave soldiers who laid down their lives to protect Mother India. The country will always be indebted to them and their family members. Jai Hind,” Murmu said in a tweet in Hindi.
