Modi’s message to China, “soldiers’ sacrifice won’t go in vain”, will defend every inch of the territory
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the ultimate sacrifice made by the Indian Soldiers in the line of their duties will not go waste. He said that the Indian Army is fully capable of replying to its enemies in the language that they understand.
Narendra Modi, while doing the second-day video conference with state chief ministers, gave these remarks. He also asked the chief ministers to observe a two-minute silence in respect of the martyred soldiers.
PM Modi said that India has all the right to defend its territory and it will defend every inch of it, by all means.
At least 20 brave soldiers lost their lives in a battle with the Chinese Army at LAC near Galwan Valley on June 15 night. There are reports that 4 to 5 more soldiers are critically injured.
If sources to be believed, the government has given a free-hand to the army to react to the on-ground situation. The decision was taken during the marathon meetings held between PM Modi, EAM S Jaishankar, and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh late last night.
