Vice Chief of Army Lieutenant General B. S. Raju today flagged off a Motor Bike Expedition from the National War Memorial, New Delhi. To commemorate the 23 years of victory over Pakistan in Kargil War of 1999 and celebrate the spirit of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, the Indian Army has organised the Motor Bike Expedition from New Delhi to the Kargil War Memorial at Dras in Ladakh.
Over the next six days, the team of 30 serving personnel who have embarked on this dream expedition will endeavour to replicate the indomitable spirit of the Kargil brave-hearts by rekindling the spirit of fortitude, courage and adventure synonymous with the Indian Army.
The bike rally will pass through Haryana, Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh before culminating the expedition at the Kargil War Memorial, Dras on 26th of this month.
In order to cover maximum areas, the rally is being split into two teams, who will move along two different axes, the Zojila Pass axis and Rohtang Pass axis, covering a distance of 1,400 kilometres and 1,700 kilometres.
During the rally, the team will traverse through high mountain passes and arduous tracks in an endeavour to reach remote localities along the route. The rally intends to spread the message of patriotism by highlighting the grit and determination portrayed by our brave soldiers, deployed in service of the Nation.
The expedition will culminate at Kargil War Memorial in #Drass on 26th Jul to commemorate “Kargil Vijay Diwas” , a befitting tribute to the brave fallen soldiers who made the #supreme #sacrifice during #Kargil #War (2/2)@SpokespersonMoD @AmritMahotsav @MinOfCultureGoI pic.twitter.com/1KC8qQWVhm
