It is the day when the people and the armed forces got together to defend the territorial integrity and honour of the country and demonstrated a sense of purpose and national unity to successfully thwart off the Indian act of aggression.

He said that our brave armed forces rose to every challenge in the past and the nation is confident that if need be, they will do everything to secure our independence and our set of traditions and values and our way of life. He said that the soldiers and officers of the armed forces wrote heroic chapters of bravery during the wars of 1948, 1965 and 1971.
