Our nation is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of India’s victory over Pakistan. Kargil Vijay Diwas, named after the successful “Operation Vijay” was the name given to India’s limited time conflict with Pakistan on 26 July.
On this date in 1999, India successfully took command of the high outposts which had been lost to Pakistan. Every citizen is paying their tribute to the soldiers who fought in the 1999 Kargil War.

During the Kargil War in 1999, I had the opportunity to go to Kargil and show solidarity with our brave soldiers.
This was the time when I was working for my Party in J&K as well as Himachal Pradesh.
The visit to Kargil and interactions with soldiers are unforgettable. pic.twitter.com/E5QUgHlTDS
