27/07/2021
SRINAGAR, Jul 26: President Ram Nath Kovind, who visited the Dagger War Memorial in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district on Monday, said it evokes profound respect for the brave fighters who laid down their lives for the safety and security of the country. Kovind was scheduled to visit the War Memorial at Drass in Ladakh to pay homage to personnel of the armed forces killed in the 1999 Kargil war, but bad weather forced cancellation of plans and he instead paid tributes to martyrs on the 22nd anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas at Baramulla. The president, in a message in the visitor's book at the Dagger War Memorial, wrote: "The nation salutes the soldiers and officers of the 19th Infantry Division, who have been safeguarding our borders in the most hostile terrains under adverse weather conditions as our frontline troops."
