Society draws inspiration from veterans of armed forces: Rajnath Singh

While addressing the fifth Armed Forces Veterans Day programme at IAF HQ Training Command in Bengaluru, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on January 14 said, "January 14 represents both 'Jai Jawan' and 'Jai Kisan' because the day is celebrated as Veterans Day and Makar Sankranti/Bihu, harvest festivals." "I believe once a soldier, always a soldier. The society draws inspiration from the veterans of the armed forces. They have an important role to play in the society," he added.
