  • Many of our soldiers have been martyred here - some bodies are found after 21 years.

  • There hasn't been an instance where there has been a natural calamity and the jawans of the Indian Army have not reached there to help.
  • If you don't see this glacier you can't imagine under what hostile weather and circumstance our jawans are serving the motherland.
  • We have decided to build a national war memorial. 
  • After having served in the Army, if you have to depend on others  - that isn't acceptable.
  • Even after you retire we want you to live with honour and dignity. 
  • Entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with you.
  • You make it possible for 125 core Indians to celebrate Diwali.
  • Have come to celebrate my first diwali with you as Prime Minister.
  • Your dreams are our responsibility.
  • I am here as a representative of jawans' families.
