Defence Minister Rajnath Singh visits Budgam on Thursday for Indian Army’s “Shaurya Diwas” celebration of the 76th Infantry Day.

Lieutenant governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha attended the event as well. Singh also went to a display put on by the Indian Army.

The First Battalion of the Sikh Regiment soldiers were responsible for the triumph.

The brave infantry men and their families received congratulations and well wishes from the defence minister on this, the 76th Infantry Day.

“Salutations and best wishes to our valiant infantrymen and women, as well as to their families, on this 76th Infantry Day. Indian army has a reputation for being extremely brave and professional. The country honours their valour, sacrificial giving, and service “Singh tweeted.

The second prominent Union minister to travel to Jammu and Kashmir this month was Rajnath Singh.

Prior to this, beginning on October 4, Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited the Union Territory for three days.
