Nowshera: PM Modi praised Indian soldiers on Thursday for securing the country’s borders, calling them the nation’s “suraksha kawach” (armour). People may sleep peacefully because of the Indian army, according to the Prime Minister.

“Our warriors are Maa Bharti’s’suraksha kawach.’ It is because of you all that the people of our country may sleep soundly at night and celebrate festivals with joy “While speaking to soldiers in the Nowshera sector of the Rajouri district of Jammu & Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated.

“I have spent each Diwali with soldiers guarding our borders. Today, I have brought along with me the blessings of crores of Indians for our soldiers here,” he said.

The Prime Minister mentioned that modern border infrastructure is being created to improve connectivity and force deployment, and that “India must increase its military capabilities in sync with the changing world and patterns of war” during his speech.

PM Modi praised the brigade’s contribution to surgical strikes in the area. It should be mentioned that India launched the surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC) on September 29, 2016, in response to a terrorist attack on an Army facility in Jammu & Kashmir’s Uri region.

Following the surgical strike, PM Modi stated that “many attempts were made to spread terrorism here,” but that they were met with a “befitting response.” According to the Prime Minister, India’s military capabilities must be improved to keep up with the changing world and tactics of warfare.

He said that border connectivity has increased, citing examples such as Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh and Jaisalmer to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Borders and coastal areas that previously lacked standard communication now have roads and optical fibres, enhancing deployment capabilities and providing facilities for soldiers, according to the Prime Minister.

PM stated “Country formerly had to rely heavily on imports in the defence sector”

PM Modi also stated that the country formerly had to rely heavily on imports in the defence sector, but that with his government’s efforts, indigenous capabilities have risen.

He praised soldiers’ bravery and asserted that their capability and strength have ensured the country’s peace and security. In addition, the Prime Minister resumed his yearly custom of celebrating Diwali with soldiers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had already arrived in Nowshera, Jammu, to spend Diwali with soldiers, as has been customary in the past.

The Nowshera sector is located in the Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, near the Line of Control (LoC). Since taking office as Prime Minister in 2014, PM Modi has been celebrating Diwali with Indian military.
