Short Speech on Kargil Vijay Diwas in English - Today we celebrate the sacrifice and martyrdom of our armed forces that brought laurels to the nation during the Kargil War against Pakistan in1999.

On this occasion, I pay tribute to all the brave-hearts, who had foiled the conspiracy of bringing down the tricolour from the Kargil’s peaks. The Kargil war was fought for more than 60 days, ended on 26 July and resulted in loss of life on both the sides. India is the land of the brave warriors, we fight to claim what is ours.
