Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Indian Army Major Amit Kumar in Kargil. In 2001, when Major Amit was a student at a Sainik school in Gujarat’s Balachadi, PM Modi met him.
They reconnected after 22 years, but this time in Kargil. In 2001, the soldier framed a photograph of himself getting an award from Gujarat’s then-chief minister, Narendra Modi. After their emotional Diwali encounter, Prime Minister Modi and Major Amit posed with the photo frame.
Since coming to power in 2014, PM Modi has been visiting different military facilities to celebrate Diwali.
