Leh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday interacted with the soldiers who were injured during the Galwan clash.
Speaking to the soldiers, PM Modi said, ” Our country has never bowed down and will never bow down to any world power, and I am able to say this because of braves like you.”
“We will never bow down to any power of the world,” said the Prime Minister in a veiled reference to China.
“I have come here to thank each one of you. Our India becomes self-reliant. I pay my respects to you as well as the mothers who gave birth to braves like you. Hope everyone gets well soon,” he said.
“You all gave a befitting reply. You are in a hospital that’s why you may not know that 130 crore citizens are proud of you. The way you stood up to the powers, the world wishes to know who are these braves. What is their training? What is their sacrifice? The world is analysing your bravery. The blood you have shed is an inspiration to our country,” he said.
