On October 14 last year, the war memorial was unveiled in Bhopal by PM Modi, Constructed by the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government. On that occassion, Prime Minister had appealed to the nation to honour and respect soldiers who lay down their lives guarding the borders. PM Modi had asked, "Can we make this effort slowly and develop a tradition to show respect to our defence forces?"
"Such small factors make a huge difference in our lives and soldiers' lives," he added. It seems PM Modi appeal pays off, recently a video is getting viral on social media in which Indian Army jawans saw a delightful change when they entered the Indira Gandhi International airport. They were returning from a UN mission.
Major Gaurav Arya took to Twitter to express his delight and to share the video of the heartwarming welcome. he said, "I have never seen this happening in India. Reaction to this is simply fantastic, in the Army. They feel honoured and loved.” Watch it here:
