Rajnath Singh also interacted with the armed forces personnel deployed at Kumar Post of Siachen Glacier in Ladakh. He also exchanged sweets with them.

On this occasion, Rajnath Singh said, “I congratulate you for the way you protect the country on the Siachen Glacier, the world's highest battlefield. Siachen land is not a common land. It is a symbol of the sovereignty and strength of the country. It represents our national resolve. Our national capital is Delhi, Mumbai is our economic capital and our technological capital is Bengaluru. Siachen is the capital of bravery and valor of India.”

Rajnath Singh laid a wreath at the war memorial at Siachen Base Camp and paid tribute to the bravehearts.

On this occasion, Army Chief Manoj Pandey was also with the Defense Minister.

On the occasion, slogans of 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' echoed in the air at Kumar's post in Ladakh's Siachen Glacier as the soldiers raised the slogan after his interaction with Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.

Rajnath Singh was scheduled to visit Siachen on March 24 to celebrate Holi with the troops, but due to 'bad weather' the schedule was changed to Leh, where the Defense Minister celebrated the occasion with the armed forces at the Leh military station.

The Siachen Glacier is located in the eastern Karakoram Range in the Himalayas and is often considered the world's highest battlefield.

Earlier on April 13, the Indian Air Force celebrated the 40th anniversary of the famous 'Operation Meghdoot' which was conducted by the Indian Army to foil Pakistan's attempts to capture the Siachen Glacier and gain control over it.

This operation was conducted by the Indian Army and Indian Air Force on 13 April 1984, which was one of the largest operations conducted by the Indian Army.
