    Addressing an event in New Delhi on the 21st anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas, the BJP President hailed the armed forces, saying they combined inspiration and strategy with valour to vanquish Pakistan during the Kargil war despite facing adverse circumstances. He said India will forever remember the sacrifices made by its soldiers to secure the country’s borders.

    Mr Nadda said, the Narendra Modi government implemented ‘one rank, one pension’ scheme and cleared all dues with payment of Rs 33,000 crore. He said that 72 border projects are now near completion while work on them was not done during the UPA government. 

    He said, as many as 36 Rafale fighter aircraft, 28 Apache and 15 Chinook helicopters have been acquired under the Modi government. He said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has maintained the policy of zero tolerance to any intrusion.
