Ladakh: Defence Minister of India Rajnath Singh on Monday visited the world’s highest battlefield Siachen glacier to interact with the forces personnel serving the nation. Singh stated that Indian citizens were sleeping freely because of the commitment of armed forces personnel deployed here.

He laid wreaths at the war memorial at Siachen glacier and paid tributes to slain men. “I was supposed to come here on the day of Holi but bad weather didn’t allow me to visit this place. But I had promised the soldiers in Ladakh that I will visit Siachen soon and today, I am glad I am here with you at the world’s highest battlefield,” said Singh, who was accompanied by army chief General Manoj Pande.

He said that armed forces personnel serving India at Siachen glacier are the real heroes and not less than the ‘devtas’ for the people of India.

He said the Government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi is committed to serve the forces personnel and take care of their families and children. “Soldiers posted at Siachen are doing unparalleled service to the nation,” he said.
