India's #NationalWarMemorial look at this journey.
Around #1960s armed forces first proposed a War Memorial. But Nothing Happened. @narendramodi @vikramsampath @sanjeevsanyal @anujdhar @seriousfunnyguy @ARanganathan72 @Rajeev_GoI
In 1972 #AmarJawanJyoti was buit 'under' India gate's arch to honour only 1971's war soldiers. But No #NationalWarMemorial
In 2006 there was plan to bulit #NationalWarMemorial but it was cancelled. Reason for that 'as
Heritage Committee said' was
"the wall would obstruct the view of India Gate."

#काँग्रेस_के_कुकर्म Vs #इतिहास_ही_हमारी_धरोहर_है

☝️सेना से बालाकोट और सर्जिकल स्ट्राइक के सबूत मांगते हैं और आज सैनिकों के बलिदान की दुहाई दे रहे हैं😠😠😠

☝️कोई कांग्रेसी कभी गया है क्या राष्ट्रीय युद्ध स्मारक पर❓

☝️कांग्रेस के नेता आज जम कर विलाप कर रहे हैं कि

☝️"अमर जवान ज्योति को "बुझा" दिया गया यानि एक और झूठ का प्रचार शुरू कर दिया 😠😠😠

☝️आज मोदी सरकार ने 2 मुख्य निर्णय किये,
☝️एक में कहा गया कि "इंडिया गेट पर नेता जी सुभाष चंद्र बोस जी की मूर्ति लगेगी"और

✌️दूसरा इंडिया गेट पर जल रही "अमर जवान ज्योति" को "राष्ट्रीय युद्ध स्मारक"
की ज्योति में विलीन कर दिया जायेगा...

☝️राहुल गाँधी ने ट्वीट किया "बहुत दुःख की बात है कि हमारे वीर जवानों के लिए जो अमर ज्योति जलती थी, उसे आज बुझा दिया जायेगा
कुछ लोग देशप्रेम व् बलिदान नहीं समझ सकते कोई बात नहीं हम
अपने सैनिकों के लिए अमर जवान ज्योति एक बार फिर जलाएंगे"

The flame of #AmarJawanJyoti is not being extinguished. It is being merged with flame at #NationalWarMemorial. It was an odd thing to see that the flame at Amar Jawan Jyoti payed homage to martyrs of 1971 & other wars but none of their names are present there: GoI Sources
The names inscribed on the India Gate are of only some martyrs who fought for the British in the World War 1 & the Anglo Afghan War & thus is a symbol of our colonial past: GoI Sources
The names of all Indian martyrs from all the wars, including 1971 & wars before & after it are housed at the National War Memorial. Hence it is a true 'Shraddhanjali' to have the flame paying tribute to martyrs there: GoI Sources

Proud to have steered the creation of #NationalWarMemorial from design selection to construction, as Chief of @HQ_IDS_India.

On this INDEPENDENCE DAY, posting some interesting facts in this thread about construction of this @salute2soldier ImageImageImageImage
Many insisted on locating it in military area in Delhi Cantonment, as no land was available in central Delhi.

PM @narendramodi had the vision of locating it at India Gate (only a PM could've given this spot), as it would attract tourists from other all over the world Image
Constructed over 40 acres land next to India Gate, initially the Central Vista Committee approved a height of 1.5 mtrs only for central pillar.

When all efforts failed, sr officers of CVC & others were invited on site. Realising the importance, they assented to 15 mtr. Proud Image

Had the opportunity to visit the #NationalWarMemorial in Delhi for the very first time & that too in the company of 1st course (J) NDA veterans.
Serene, powerful & beautifully laid out this Memorial perfectly captures the pathos of a soldier’s sacrifice for the nation.
Having accompanied my father to war memorials for Indian soldiers, across the UK, France & Flanders it was indeed a moving experience to finally experience this much overdue homage to our fallen men on Indian soil - incidentally, the Memorial was first proposed in 1960!
The architects, the horticulturalists & of course the political will to see the concept finally brought to fruition must be commended for this beautiful, emotion evoking piece of architecture।

As the #NationalWarMemorial is inaugurated, it becomes important to put this in perspective. During my tenure as the army chief, I had written to the then PM on multiple occasions to give the soldiers their due & build the war memorial. (1/n)
Unfortunately, my requests fell on deaf ears & a helpless man offered little explanation to why we couldn’t build a memorial. Today @RahulGandhi & his party must explain why we could do something in 5 years, but, it couldn’t be done by the @INCIndia for decades (2/n)
Before some of you accuse me of politicking, please look at an article from 2013, where in an interview I had mentioned these issues with the UPA. (3/n)
