HM Amit Shah pays tributes to Kargil martyrs on Vijay Diwas

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday paid tributes to the soldiers who laid down their lives in the Kargil War, and said due to the indomitable courage, valour and sacrifice of the brave soldiers, the tricolour was unfurled again on the inaccessible and challenging heights.
