Chandigarh, December 13, 2017: Bhartiya Janta Party Vice President and Indian Red Cross Society Vice Chairman, Avinash Rai Khanna has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh proposing that photographs and brief history of martyr soldiers of paramilitary forces be displayed in schools and colleges from where they acquired education.
In his letter, Khanna rued the fact that “martyr soldiers of the paramilitary forces who sacrificed their lives to maintain law and order in the insurgent areas of the country are not remembered for long and background history of their earlier lives remain in oblivion”.
Stressing that the ‘memories of these martyrs should be honoured’, Khanna proposed that this step was necessary ‘to make indelible vision in the mind of the young children and youth and inculcate patriotic spirit from the lives of these martyr soldiers’.
Khanna also requested that necessary directions to all the state governments may be issued to implement the proposal in letter and spirit.
