Srinagar, Oct 23: Prime minister Narendra Modi spent a precious time with the soldiers posted on the heights of Siachen Glacier to send a mesage that all Indians stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them.
Before begining his visit to Srinagar where he will celebrate Diwali with the flood victims, Modi made the solders feel that the whole india is with them.
"Everyone is aware of the extreme conditions at Siachen. Overcoming every challenge our soldiers stand firm, protecting our motherland," Modi said in a tweet.
"Be it the altitude or bitter cold, nothing deters our soldiers. They stand there, serving our nation. They make us truly proud".
"Am going to Siachen with a message from each and every Indian to our soldiers: that we stand shoulder to shoulder with you," he said in tweets from his personal Twitter account.
Modi also greeted President Pranab Mukherjee from the icy heights on the occasion of Diwali.
Siachen glacier is the world's highest battlefield at a height of 5,400 meters. Its ownership is disputed by Pakistan.
Modi will visit Srinagar from Siachen to meet victims of the recent unprecedented floods that ravaged the Kashmir Valley and the Jammu region.
