New Delhi :The whole country has faith in your strength. The country is safe in your hands,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while addressing to forces in Ladakh today.
“Your valour, respect and sacrifice towards mother earth cannot be compared. Your courage is higher than the mountains where you are posted,” the PM said in his address.
The PM reached Ladakh in a surprise visit to review the situation amid the ongoing face-off between Indian and Chinese forces.
“Those who are weak can never initiate peace, bravery is a pre-requisite for peace, Bharat Mata’s enemies have seen your fire and fury,” Modi said.
He added, “We are the same people who pray Lord Krishna, who plays the flute but we are also the same people who idolise and follow the same Lord Krishna who carries the ‘Sudarshana Chakra’.”
Era of expansionism is over. This is the era of development. Any nation that pushes ahead with expansionism ends up hurting world peace or is defeated or having to change course. Powers with greed of expansionism have always perished or mingled with someone else and history proves it,” the PM said.
