An announcement by the PM amid controversy over Amar Jawan Jyoti
Narendra Modi has made this announcement as a dispute over Amar Jawan Jyoti is raging at India Gate. Government officials have decided to combine the Amar Jawan Jyoti with the National War Memorial flame. Many opposition parties, including Congress, oppose this decision.
Rahul Gandhi says it is very sad that the Amar Jyoti, which used to burn for our brave soldiers, will be extinguished today. People everywhere cannot comprehend patriotism and sacrifice. No problem, we’ll burn the Amar Jawan Jyoti once again for our soldiers.
Amar Jawan Jyoti was inaugurated by Indira Gandhi in 1972
In 1971, Amar Jawan Jyoti was established in memory of the Indian soldiers who were martyred during the Indo-Pak war. Bangladesh was formed after India won the war. Amar Jawan Jot was inaugurated by then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on 26 January 1972.
