Rajnath Singh urges countrymen to voluntarily contribute to Armed Forces Flag Day Fund

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has urged countrymen to voluntarily contribute to Armed Forces Flag Day Fund. Speaking at a function organized in New Delhi for the customary launch of the Armed Forces Flag pinning, Mr Singh said our forces have always been fighting valiantly to safeguard the sovereignty of the country. He said, in the process sometimes, they have even laid down their lives, leaving behind their families or were rendered disabled.
He said, hence the rehabilitation and welfare of our Ex Servicemen, the next of kin of our martyrs and our disabled soldiers is the responsibility of all citizens. He said, the Flag Day provides us an opportunity to fulfill this responsibility by contributing to the AFFD fund. Noting that over 47 crore rupees were raised during 2019-20 through voluntary contributions of people, the Defence Minister  expressed hope that people of the country will manifest the same spirit of voluntary contributions this year too.
Armed Forces Flag Day will be observed all over the country on 7th December like previous years. Since 1949, the day is observed to honour the martyrs as well as men and women in uniform, who valiantly fight on borders to safeguard the country’s honour.
