Remembering the Heroes of Kargil: Kargil Vijay Diwas 2023


Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid an emotional homage to the soldiers who gave their lives in the 1999 Kargil conflict, which helped India defeat Pakistan, on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas.

The Prime Minister emphasized in a tweet in Hindi that Kargil Vijay Diwas serves as a reminder of the incredible bravery exhibited by India's legendary warriors, who will always be an inspiration to the people of the country.

At the Dras War Memorial, Rajnath Singh, the defense minister, laid a wreath in honor of the Kargil war heroes.


The two-day commemorative event to mark Vijay Diwas and pay tribute to the 559 troops who gave their lives in the 1999 Kargil war got underway here on Tuesday with a sombre ceremony, according to PTI. From Lamochen's vantage point, battle heroes and the relatives of the deceased warriors came to honor the valiant individuals.

Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi, the commander of the Northern Army, attended the event as the chief guest. Gen. Manoj Pande, the Army Chief of Staff, then attended a cultural event.


The Army commander and a large number of current and retired senior army officers attended the evening's poignant homage at the Kargil War Memorial.


To honor the supreme sacrifice made by the soldiers during "Operation Vijay," 559 lamps at the Veer Bhoomi were lit, each one representing a soldier.


On the eve of the 24th anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas, Army Chief Gen. Manoj Pande met with veterans, "Veer Naris," recipients of gallantry awards, and residents in Ladakh's Drass and expressed his thanks to them.


The Indian Army proclaimed the victorious conclusion of "Operation Vijay" on July 26, 1999. This came after a struggle that lasted nearly three months in the freezing heights of Kargil, including extremely high ground like Tololing and Tiger Hill.
