New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday greeted people on the anniversary of India’s victory over Pakistan in the 1971 war, noting it took place at a time when neighbouring countries used to recognise the mettle of the Indian prime minister and feared violating our borders.
India celebrates December 16 as Vijay Diwas to commemorate its victory over Pakistan during the 1971 war that led to the creation of Bangladesh.
“Greetings to people of the country on the celebration of India’s historic victory over Pakistan in 1971 and salutations to the valour of our armed forces,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
“It took place at a time when India’s neighbouring countries used to recognise the mettle of the Indian prime minister and feared violating the borders of our country,” he said.
