India has celebrated the 20th anniversary of Kargil War on 26th July. Dating back to 1999, on this day, Indian armed forces have won the massive war against Pakistani troops. So, in the name of this way, several armed forces have lost their lives to re-capture posts that have been taken over by the Pakistani Army.
Being the 20th-anniversary celebration, the victory celebrations started from 14th of July that would go through 11 towns, including cities and finally it would be taken to Dras. Several plans have been organized for the day, including expeditions by different units. In addition, however, the events will last for 12 days in Leh. Even school children are encouraged for drawing competitions to draw on thematic topics pertaining to the war.
Digging deep into the history of Operation Vijay
During 1998-1999, Pakistan Armed forces were being trained and infiltrating Pakistani troops and the forces to fight against Indian side of the Line of Control of LoC.The infiltration was named ‘Operation Badr’ with the primary concern of creating a link between Ladhak and Pakistan. This, in turn, would compel Indian forces to withdraw from Siachen Glaciers. However, as a result of this, the Indian armed forces will be forced to opt for a settlement due to the rising Kashmir dispute.
It is important to mention that the war between the two countries began after both signed for the Lahore Declaration in February 1999. In this, both countries were on the same page to resolve Kashmir issue peacefully. As the Pakistan troops start to intrude into the Indian side, Indian Armed forces, on the other hand, started to respond to Operation Vijay. In this regard, the main aim of Pakistan was to spend most of its soldiers in different posts during winters as Indians vacated the posts at that time.
