After 60 years of wait, Indian Armed Forces get the world class National War Memorial under the Modi Govt

It is a shame for nation that the brave hearts of the country who are protecting us day and night by risking their life has been deprived of the honour and respect. Congress party has always insulted the brave hearts of the nation. But PM Modi Government has tried its best to honour the soldiers and look after their all needs which were deprived since long

In such another welcome move, PM Modi Government is now fully ready to inaugurate the world class National War Memorial (NWM) to honour the over 22,600 soldiers who have laid down their lives in wars and operations since independence.

The National War Memorial (NWM) was proposed around 60 years before by the armed forces. But it remained stuck in general politico-bureaucratic apathy.But now this proposal of soldiers is reality .And the credit of this goes to PM Modi and his Government. PM Modi is likely to inaugurate the world class National War Memorial (NWM) adjoining the India Gate complex on the majestic Rajpath in the capital, on January 25
India was probably the only major country not to have a NWM,” said a senior officer.

“The life of an Indian soldier, after all, comes dirt cheap. The National War Memorial will finally fulfill this long-pending emotional demand of the armed forces, which over the years successfully resisted moves to shift it elsewhere or to the outskirts of Delhi,” he added.

The National War Memorial is built at a cost of Rs 176 crore. It was approved by the PM Modi Government in October 2015.Initially the Government wanted to inaugurate the memorial on August 15 in 2018, but missed its deadline for completion. Built in keeping with the “aesthetics and sanctity” of the Central Vista and India Gate, the memorial has a layout of four landscaped concentric circles spread over 40 acres.

The Amar Chakra (circle of immortality), Veer Chakra (circle of bravery), Tyag Chakra (circle of sacrifice) and Rakshak Chakra (circle of protection) will include a 15-metre tall central obelisk with the eternal flame, bronze murals, graphic panels, inscription of names of martyrs and busts of the 21 Param Vir Chakra awardees, as earlier reported by TOI. “The NWM, with a central congregation space, has been designed to ensure it does not obstruct the existing layout of Raj path and its iconic structures,” said the official.

A suitable design, in turn, is in the process of being identified for the proposed National War Museum at Princess Park, adjoining the NWM at the C Hexagon of the India Gate complex. “The museum will take some years to be constructed. The initial cost approved for it is around Rs 350 crore,” he added.

It’s an applauded effort by the Modi government. Thanks to PM Modi Government for taking care of soldiers at first. It is only because of them we are living safely at our places
