Jaipur : Kargil Vijay Diwas was celebrated by Konark Corps on 26 July 2023 at Jodhpur Military Station to commemorate the valour and saga of Indian Army during Kargil War.
On the occasion, General Officer Commanding Jodhpur Sub Area laid a wreath at Konark War Memorial to pay obeisance to the brave soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice and made this victory possible.
Kargil Vijay Diwas named after the success of ‘Operation Vijay’, commemorates the victory achieved over Pakistani intruders in the Kargil War of 1999. This war, launched on 06 May 1999, is a saga of bravery and valour that lasted 80 days and ended with eviction of the intruders.
Fighting at daunting altitudes and seemingly unassailable peaks ranging from 13000 to 18000 feet, what our Indian troops achieved was nothing short of a miracle. The entire nation is proud of this momentous victory of the Indian Armed Forces and Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated on 26 July each year to commemorate this ‘Glorious Victory’.
