JAMMU, DEC 6: Governor N.N. Vohra has greeted people on the occasion of the Armed Forces Flag Day.
Following is his message on the occasion:
The Armed Forces Flag Day, observed on 7th December every year, provides an opportunity for all our people to show solidarity with our valiant soldiers and families of the Martyrs.
On this solemn occasion, when the people of India pay homage to all those who made the supreme sacrifice to preserve the country’s territorial integrity, we also need to remember that, even during peace time, our Armed Forces remain ever ready to meet any arising threat to the unity of the Nation and, besides, render immediate assistance during any emergency, man-made or natural.
In Jammu and Kashmir, the Army has been playing a pivotal role in combating terrorism and providing a secure environment, particularly for those who live in difficult areas along the International Border and Line of Control.
I appeal to the people of the State, particularly the privileged sections of society, to donate liberally to the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund, both as a token of remembrance and expression of gratitude.
On the occasion of Armed Forces Flag Day, I send my greetings and good wishes to all serving and retired Armed Forces personnel, and their families.
