India inaugurates its National War Memorial


NEW DELHI, 25 FEB.Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday evening dedicated the National War Memorial to martyred soldiers in postindependence India.

He also penned a heartfelt message in which he saluted the country's bravehearts - their valour and their sacrifices.

PM Modi dedicated the memorial, built at a cost of Rs 176 crore, by lighting the flame positioned at the bottom of the stone-made obelisk. Rose petals were showered by IAF helicopters and a fly-past in 'Missing Man' formation was also part of the event.

There was no national memorial to commemorate the sacrifice of fallen soldiers after independence. The NWM pays tribute to soldiers who laid down their lives defending the nation during India-China war in 1962, Indo- Pak wars in 1947, 1965 and 1971, Indian Peace Keeping Force Operations in Srilanka and in the Kargil conflict of 1999.

The sanction for the project was issued on December 18, 2015 and actual work on it started in February 2018.
