New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a Sindhu Darshan puja at Ladakh’s Nimu on Friday.
The Sindhu Darshan festival is a three-day event that will be celebrated in June every year on the day of the full moon. The festival recognizes the Sindhu (Indus) river as a symbol of unity, peaceful co-existence and communal harmony.
PM Modi visited the War Memorial’s Hall of Fame to honour soldiers, who had died for our country and the Army General Hospital to interact with those injured in the Galwan violence.
During his visit, while briefing to the media, the Prime Minister, without naming China, said: “Age of expansionism is over, this is the age of development. History is witness that expansionist forces either lost or were forced to turn back.”
Furtherly he described Indian soldiers as “braves of the soil” and said the “weak can never accomplish peace, the brave do”.
PM Modi also said India would not stop building roads and bridges in the border area, which is believed to have been the cause of China’s aggression.
