Similar functions were organised across the country, in particular at the various War Memorials erected in different states, like the one in Dras tehsil of Kargil. Dras was the epicentre of the Kargil War and is situated in the foothills of Tololing Hill while the Tiger Hill is visible just across it (both areas that saw massive infiltration by the enemy before being re-captured by the Indian forces).

The conflict – code named Operation Vijay by the Indian Army – that lasted for about two months ended on July 26, 1999 and was fought mainly in the Kargil sector of Jammu and Kashmir. Although initially, the infiltration by the Pakistan Army and even non-state actors in the conflict-ridden state – a matter that most defence experts have in the years since termed as a colossal failure of both the Military Intelligence and the Indian government’s other intelligence gathering agencies – caused heavy casualties in the Indian Armed Forces, Pakistan was finally defeated in the War and a ceasefire was announced on July 26, 1999. India pegged the official figure of casualties in the war at 527, while those wounded numbered 1363.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1501067383321{padding-top: 20px !important;background-color: #a2b1bf !important;}”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Dismissed brigadier claims Chinese soldier were present in Kargil in 1998

Brigadier Surinder Singh, who was dismissed from the Indian Army after the Kargil war on the charge of allegedly leaking classified documents, has alleged in an interview to a national daily that a nine-page intelligence brief prepared in August 1998 had pointed at the presence of Chinese soldiers in the Kargil sector. Singh, who was then commander of 121 Infantry Brigade, claimed that he had sent the brief to the then General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the area on August 25, 1998. It is now part of court record at the Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT), Chandigarh, which is hearing a petition filed by Brig Singh against his dismissal.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1501067476345{padding-top: 20px !important;background-color: #a2b1bf !important;}”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Miscreants vandalise 1962 War Memorial in Delhi

A day before the Kargil Vijay Diwas, some unidentified miscreants vandalised the Rezang La war memorial in New Delhi’s Palam area. Members of the Martyr’s Family Welfare Foundation found broken benches and damaged plaques at the memorial when they visited it on Tuesday morning to plan an event to mark the Kargil Vijay Diwas. The Rezang La Memorial, spread across 7,000 sq feet, had been inaugurated by the then Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on December 29, 2012. It was constructed to honour 114 martyrs who sacrificed their lives during the historic battle of Rezang La pass in 1962 with China. A majority of war heroes of the 13th Kumaon Regiment were from south Haryana districts of Gurgaon, Rewari and Bhiwani-Mahendragarh.

An FIR has been registered against unknown persons under section 427 (mischief causing damage to property) and prevention of damage to Public Property Act.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]

AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj says a conspiracy is underway for slow death of Arvind Kejriwal

Saurabh Bharadwaj also slammed the Tihar administration, BJP, Centre and Delhi LG and held them responsible for denying insulin to Kejriwal and said the Delhi Chief Minister has been suffering from Type-2 diabetes for the last 20-22 years.

The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is being pushed towards a slow death inside Tihar jail as he is being denied insulin and consultations with his doctor.  AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj told the media that Arvind Kejriwal, who is suffering from Type-2 diabetes, has been asking for insulin and a video conferencing with his family doctor as the jail administration is not allowing him to do so.

Bharadwaj said he wants to say with full responsibility that a conspiracy is underway for the slow death of Kejriwal. He said his claims were on the basis of blood sugar readings of the Delhi Chief Minister in jail. He also slammed the Tihar administration, BJP, Centre and Delhi LG and held them responsible for denying insulin to Kejriwal and said the Delhi Chief Minister has been suffering from Type-2 diabetes for the last 20-22 years.

On Friday, the Delhi chief minister’s council Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Kejriwal has not been administered insulin to control his sugar levels since his arrest, and termed it alarming and shocking. The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday claimed before the court that Kejriwal has been taking high sugar intake by consuming foods like mangoes and sweets every day, inspite of the fact that he was suffering from Type-2 diabetes, to create grounds for medical bail.

Kejriwal refuted the claims of the Enforcement Directorate by asserting before a court that the food he consumed was in accordance with the diet chart prepared by his doctor. Arvind Kejriwal confirmed that he only uses sugar free in his tea.

Bharadwaj further added that overall, it was a conspiracy to give a slow death to Arvind  Kejriwal so that his multiple organs get damaged and when he comes out of jail after 2-4 months he goes for the treatment of heart, kidney and other organs.
