India marks Kargil Vijay Diwas today: All you need to know

Kargil Vijay Diwas Reminds us the Supreme Sacrifice of Indian Soldiers: Narendra Modi

The Kargil conflict was flight between India and Pakistan between May and July 1999 in the Kargil sector of Kashmir and elsewhere along the Line of Control (LoC).

The Indian Army had successfully taken back command of outposts after 60 days of fighting, helping India regain possession in Kargil.

People did not just salute the fearless sacrifices of the soldiers, one of the Twitter users even took to Twitter to share the heartwarming picture of his father - an army official - who was a part of the Kargil war. It took about three months for the Indian forces to recapture the posts.

It was constructed to honour 114 martyrs who sacrificed their lives during the historic battle of Rezang La pass in 1962 with China. However, the operation was officially declared closed on July 26, 1999.

Rao told ANI, "A battalion of 120 men of the Indian Army were surrounded by the Chinese Army during the 1962 war and out of those who sacrificed their lives, 114 soldiers were from the South Haryana districts of Gurgaon, Rewari and Mahendragarh".
