Smriti Irani, first woman minister to visit Siachen; will celebrate Raksha Bandhan with soldiers

Textile Minister Smriti Irani will go to Siachen base camp to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with soldiers. This will be the first time when a woman minister will visit Siachen.

 MoS for Commerce Nirmala Sitharaman, MoS in the Ministry of Food Processing Industries Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, and MoS in the Health Ministry Anupriya Patel will be also meeting soldiers.

Textile Minister Smriti Irani will go to Siachen base camp to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with soldiers. Besides Irani, seven more women ministers in theNarendra Modi government will be visiting soldiers elsewhere that day. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti, Women and Child Welfare Minister Maneka Gandhi will visit borders areas and interact with the soldiers. MoS for Commerce Nirmala Sitharaman, MoS in the Ministry of Food Processing Industries Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, and MoS in the Health Ministry Anupriya Patel will be also meeting soldiers.

Defence minister Manohar Parrikar said Irani will visit the Siachen Base Camp on August 18. The army will be asked to make arrangements for her visit on Raksha Bandhan, the festival that sees men vowing to protect their sisters. Soldiers at Siachen have seen visits by Prime Minister and defence ministers on special occasions but perhaps this will be the first time when a woman minister will visit Siachen. In 2014, PM Modi visited Siachen on Diwali and interacted with the soldiers. The visit comes amid a fresh debate over the army’s presence in Kashmir valley and escalated tension with Pakistan.

  2. D woman minister's visit is a farce! Pbors r hitherto regarded as sahayaks and wl remain so, let all women mins scale Everests. Notice d anomaly committee,s issues and find pbors concerns! De hv very tactfully bypassed d core anomalies of PBORs. In a word we r fooled all along!

  4. No doubt, such gestures













































































    No doubt, it a welcome move; will boost the morale of the Jawans. Six other Lady Ministters are also visiting differnt border areas. Yes the govt must ensure the loyalty of the fighting forces. Happy that the govt realized this important aspect and am really happy to note that the Govt have given the rightful place to the veteran where they are to be dumped; that is "TRASH BIN".
    Anything which loses the utility must be discarded that is precisely the Govt and MOD(i) are doing.
    Hipocricy, thy name is GOI. Jai Hind

    It is a welcome step of Smiriti Irani that she is going to Siachin on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan which will enable her to see herself under the circumstances her brothers are living there and safeguarding the motherland.

    She is a part of Central Govt. Will she be moved by seeing the plight of serving soldiers. Will she take up the welfare matters of serving and veteran soldiers at a appropriate level?
    Or it is going to be another eye wash. Prime Minister Modi himself has visited and seen and also forgot.

    Let us see what she is going to do.

  8. I fully support sH RANGANATHSRI JEE And add that our chiefs must dare to boycott all women ministers visit and shall not be the celebrity of the event ,since they shed crocodile tears,if not will all women MP pledge to address CHIEFS OF STAFF COMMITTEE's plight? , if not ,celebration would be a cruel joke and humiliations towards their brothers at border,who are the saviour of sisters, particularly in the GOVT.

  9. Acr is initiated after having 6 m services under initiating pers. So it is a criteria period for understanding the behavioural order of the ward. So it is a mandatory want of anybody to get aquainted with climate, infrastructre and well being there by remaining there atleast for three months. So the go & comback is notmuch releavant. The personality may take twist refering swiss chcholate etc....etc. this is my pers opinion only.
