Speaking on the occasion, Governor Bhardwaj said, he, being the son and brother of soldiers knows the pain of losing the family member in the combat operation. He felt that merely remembering a soldier is not enough. Government and the people should see that the family is not suffered and full provision and protection is given to the families of the soldier.
