New Delhi: The Army Day is not just observed to laud the nation’s military prowess but to remember the selfless sacrifices made by the jawans to ensure the sovereignty of the country.

There are people after whom no roads are named nor statues built but a thousand countrymen remain speechless when their bodies return wrapped in the tricolor.

They are the proud sons of our motherland whose only goal is to save the nation from foreign forces.

15th January is the day when India upholds the bravery of the soldiers.

History: India celebrated its first Army Day on 15 January 1949 when Lieutenant General K M Cariappa took over as the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army from the last British Commander-in-Chief of India, General Sir Francis Butcher.

Army Day 2016: This year the day was observed remembering the indomitable courage showed by the armed forces to thwart the Pakistani forces. The force also helped in the rescue in the flood-ravaged southern India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday he tweeted, “Saluting the indomitable valour, determination & dedication of our Army on Army Day.”

Congress helping those who want to weaken Army: Modi, wikimedia commons

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress of aiding those who he said want to weaken the Indian Army and raising questions over the government and even the Supreme Court over Rafale fighter jets.

“Today, there are two camps in the country. One is the government that is trying to strengthen our Army. The other wants to weaken our Army at any cost,” Modi said, flagging off the 900th coach of Modern Rail Factory and a Humsafar Rake in Rae Bareli, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency.

“The country has been witnessing that the Congress stands by those powers who don’t want our armed forces to be strengthened,” he added, in an obvious reference to Sonia Gandhi’s son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi who has been accusing corruption in the Rafale jet deal with France.

The Prime Minister said the country was watching “such people” who he added were “getting support of countries pitted against India”.

“What is the reason that people in Pakistan clap when some of our leaders speak?”

The Prime Minister pointedly accused the Congress of raising questions over the dignity of the Defence Ministry, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Air Force, France and the Supreme Court over the purchase of Rafale jet aircraft.

“Some people only accept lies and speak lies. For them the country’s Defence Ministry, Defence Minster and Air Force officers are liars. The French government is also a liar. Now, the country’s Supreme Court is also a liar for them.

“But truth does not need ‘shringaar’ and lies will always die. The country will never forgive the Congress over its attitude towards the Army.”
