On the eve of the 16th anniversary of Vijay Divas, he laid a wreath at the Kargil war memorial here and said: “We won’t allow another Kargil.”

The Kargil war was fought in the summer of 1999 to evict Pakistani regular forces who had intruded and occupied posts vacated for the winter on the Indian side of the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

A commemorative function is held every year in the memory of the hundreds of Indian soldiers who died in the operation. (IANS)
