Modi recalls Kargil war during Ladakh visit
Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday recalled the Kargil war during his day-long visit to Jammu and Kashmir's Ladakh region.
Addressing soldiers here, Modi said that armed forces deployed in border areas are well-connected with the people who live there.
He highlighted the example of the Kargil infiltrations, about which the first information was given to our armed forces by a shepherd named Tashi Namgyal.
India defeated Pakistani infiltrators in the 1999 Kargil war.
