While releasing the Memoir Portrait of 3 great Officers from KP community, who served the nation during Kargil War namely Lt Amit Kaul, Major Sushil Aima & Commando Suraj Bhan , KP Community along with other nationalistic organisations of Delhi NCR paid floral tributes to them at the venue. Y4PK thanked its senior leadership in Jammu for providing motivation to the youngsters who serve the nation by joining Indian Defence Forces.

Col Anil Kaul from C4F , Meenakshi Lekhi BJP spokesperson & many other Ex Servicemen graced the occasion. They said that there has been a long standing demand of the country’s military’s for a National War Memorial to honour the 20,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen who have sacrificed their lives while defending independent India. A broad section of the public echoes this plea.

Ankit Gupta & Vithal Chowdhary, the firebrand youth leaders reiterated the demand is for a prominent memorial on New Delhi’s Central Vista, which can be visited freely by the Indian public, and where wreathes can be offered by national leaders on occasions like the Republic Day, and by visiting foreign dignitaries who choose to do so.

BSKS Chief Sardar Tajinder Singh Baggah who has been spearheading the MODI:FY Campaign maintained that current Government at Central & State were trying to belittle the efforts of brave Army men in kargil Operations & thereafter in Kashmir.

Youth Coordinators Himalaya Sumbly & Anoop Bhat maintained that the current memorial, the Amar Jawan Jyoti, is merely an add-on to the India Gate, an imposing 42-metre high British structure, built in 1921, to honour the 90,000 Indian soldiers who died in the First World War. The irony is evident: the British exalted the memory of Indians who died for the empire; but India finds it bothersome to suitably commemorate those who fell in service of the republic.
