In his Sunday’s address to the nation during Mann Ki Baat, PM Modi had interacted for the first time with Indian citizens over the India-China dispute at Galwan Valley. In his speech, PM said that India very well knows how to respond to aggression against it.
He hailed the heroism of the 20 soldiers who were killed in the Galwan valley face-off and said that the brave jawans of India know how to protect the territorial integrity of the country.
“India bows to our brave martyrs, they have always kept India safe. Their valour will always be remembered, PM Modi said, in his first address after the Galwan Valley face-off between India and China along Line of Actual Control.
