“As we mark the 50th anniversary of 1965 war, I bow to all brave soldiers who fought for our Motherland in the war. The courage and bravery of our Armed Forces is very inspiring, Prime Minister Modi said in a series of tweets.

“They triumphed over every obstacle & protected India's unity & integrity. We recall the dynamic leadership of Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri. In 1965 he led from the front and was a key source of strength for the nation,” he added.
