(3/3) Along with the missile strikes, the #Azerbaijani units have also resumed attempts to advance their positions. The #ArmedForces of the Republic of #Armenia are taking all necessary measures to adequately respond to the enemy.

1/ #AgnipathScheme envisages youth upto 21 years of age to be enrolled for training and to serve the nation for a period of 4 years, with a provision of voluntary retention after this period, based on merit.
2/ Due to #COVID19 recruitments to the #ArmedForces had been impacted. Hence, @PMOIndia has taken a decision to increase, for the first year, the upper age limit to 23 years of age for the #AgnipathScheme
3/@PMOIndia has taken this step being sensitive to the aspirations of our youth.

This decision will help our youth who had lost out on opportunities to serve the nation due to the pandemic.

Grateful for this timely and caring decision PM @narendramodi ji.

PDP-Mehbooba Mufti. A #Thread

The latest remarks by PDP claiming to fight #abrogation of #Article370 comes to no surprise. The party helmed by Ms Mehbooba #Mufti has a long history of peddling controversies in #Kashmir to gain political traction

#PDP was founded in 1998 Late #Mufti Mohammed Sayeed. Interestingly he was the state's Home Minister when the fateful abduction of Rubaiya Sayeed(his daughter)took place in 1989. Many believes this was the turning point in #Kashmir's history which propelled it into chaos

PDP Government’s blunders in #BhuranWani incident in 2016 saw a massive breakdown of governance in the history #Kashmir second only to 1989’s unrest.
It marked the revival of #Separatism & #terrorism, which had remarkably waned in the whole of Kashmir, between..

Over 26,000 KIA have their names etched on the walls of National War Memorial in New Delhi. Have you ever thought how many could have been saved had their blood loss been stopped soon after injury?

02. #Why90PercentSoldiersAreBroughtInDead
We don’t think, since our ‘nationalism’ commences from death onwards. We never want to find out if the soldier had a chance of living or simply put, “did he HAVE to die”?

#crpfpeacekeepers #CRPF #ArmedForces #ARMY
03. #Why90PercentSoldiersAreBroughtInDead

We need to create awareness about cause of death of soldiers in operations. Its easy to shout "Bharat Mata Ki Jai", sing songs and hoist national flag. How many of us actually find out the circumstances under which the soldier died?
