They fought bravely in extremely harsh conditions to protect our motherland. Their valour and indomitable spirit will always be etched as a defining moment in the history of India,” he tweeted.

I bow to all the brave soldiers who laid down their lives to protect Mother India. All the countrymen will always be indebted to them and their family members,” Murmu wrote on Twitter.
