इतिहास इस बात का साक्षी है कि भारत ने दूसरे देश की जमीन पर कब्जा करने के लिए आज तक कहीं भी और कभी भी हमला नहीं किया है। भारतवर्ष जमीन नहीं दिल जीतने में विश्वास रखता है। परंतु इसका अर्थ यह कतई नहीं है कि हम अपने स्वाभिमान के ऊपर आंच आने देंगे: रक्षा मंत्री

राष्ट्रीय सुरक्षा के दायरे में हम जो कुछ भी करते हैं, वह हमेशा आत्मरक्षा के लिए करते हैं, दूसरों पर हमला करने के लिए नहीं। दुश्मन देश ने कभी हमारे ऊपर आक्रमण किया, तो हर बार की तरह हम उसे मुंहतोड़ जवाब देंगे: रक्षा मंत्री

आज मैं गलवान में बलिदान देने वाले सैनिकों को विशेष रूप से स्मरण करते हुए अपनी श्रद्धांजलि देता हूं। यह देश उनकी बहादुरी और उनके सर्वोच्च बलिदान को कभी भुला नही सकता।
मैं उनके परिवारों को भरोसा देना चाहता हूँ कि वे लोग अकेले नहीं हैं बल्कि पूरा देश उनके परिवार के साथ खड़ा है: RM

He additionally stated, “Our forces are pioneers within the defence of the nation, so I guarantee you that the federal government is doing all that’s vital to take care of your excessive morale and fulfill your Operational Requirement.
The Defence Minister paid particular tribute to the troopers who sacrificed their lives in Galwan Valley. “This country can never forget his bravery and his supreme sacrifice. I want to assure their families that they are not alone but the whole country stands with their families,” he stated. “Today the country is confident that no force can occupy our one inch of land while you are deployed. If someone dares to do this, then he has to suffer heavy consequences and will have to suffer even further,” Singh stated to the armed forces. “My expensive brothers and sisters of the armed forces, India goes to have a good time 74th Independence Day from midnight tonight. On this auspicious event, I lengthen my heartiest congratulations to all of the troopers and navy officers working within the armed forces on behalf of the grateful nation. I want all of the serving personnel in addition to ex-servicemen of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. I additionally congratulate the households whose family members are distant from them not solely in troublesome and inaccessible areas but in addition within the deep sea, stated the Defence Minister. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi while accepting the demand for reform in the field of defence, made a historic announcement on the Independence Day last year to form the CDS from the ramparts of Lal Qila. The formation of the CDS has also ensured better coordination between the armies. It will have far-reaching results,” stated the Defence Minister. “You will remember that for a long time there was a lack of new modern combat aircraft in the Indian Air Force. As soon as our government arrived, respected Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, started a government-to-government agreement with France to procure 36 Rafale as soon as possible. It is good news that Rafale’s consignments have started arriving. Five Rafale aircraft arrived at Ambala Air Base two weeks ago. The rest are also coming soon. Touch down of Rafale fighter aircraft in India marks the beginning of a new era in our military history,” he acknowledged.
He added, “In addition, 222 Squadron of Sukhoi MKI has been stationed at Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu which is equipped with BrahMos missile. This gives us Strategic Depth in the Indian Ocean.” “On May 2020, the 18th Squadron of Air Force Station Salur has been revived through the second camp of LCA Tejas. This is a major step towards self-sufficiency. Also, to make the Air Force’s capability stronger, it has also been approved to purchase 21 MiG-29 aircraft,” Singh acknowledged.
Speaking on the coronavirus pandemic, he stated, “The Armed Forces have always played a decisive role in any kind of disaster in the country from time to time. The year 2020 will be known as COVID-19 year in the pages of history. The whole world has stopped because of this epidemic. India is also not untouched by this. Ministry of Defense and its various organs viz. Armed Forces, AFMS, DRDO, DPSUs, OFB, Cantonment Council, Ex-Servicemen Welfare Board, National Cadet Corps and other autonomous units of the Ministry have been active from the very beginning for the prevention of coronavirus.” “The service work that the armed forces have done in times of crisis fills us with pride. DRDO in collaboration with Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Armed Forces, and industry groups built the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel COVID Hospital in New Delhi in a record time of 12 days. Border Road Organization personnel also deserve congratulations, who started a new era by establishing Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra and border area connectivity even in the most inaccessible conditions,” stated the Defence Minister.
He added, “With the completion of this important road connectivity, decades-old dreams and aspirations of local people and pilgrims have been fulfilled. With the completion of the connectivity road, this Mansarovar Yatra can be completed in a week which used to take 2-3 weeks to complete.” “Last year, in honour of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, on his birthday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi named the Rohtang Tunnel as ‘Atal Tunnel’. This 8.8 km long tunnel is likely to be completed by September 2020. Due to its construction, the road distance between Manali and Leh will be reduced by 46 kilometres and the road will remain open for twelve months between Lahaul and Spiti,” he additional stated.
Singh stated, “Empowerment of women in the armed forces has been a major focus in the last five years. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always supported the idea of the permanent commission of women and during his Independence Day speech of 2018, he also announced this. The Ministry of Defence has issued a formal government approval letter to provide a permanent commission to women officers in the Indian Army on July 23 and thus paved the way for empowering women officers to discharge large roles in the organization.” “The government has also decided to give invalid pension to our Armed Forces personnel who become disabled during the unequalled service of the nation under 10 years. Earlier this pension was only given to Armed Forces personnel serving 10 years or more. Apart from this, the amount of ex-gratia has been increased four times per Battle Casualty (fatal) and Battle Casualty (Disability 60 per cent and above) has been increased from the current Rs two lakh to Rs eight lakh,” he added.
He concluded saying, “With these words, I once again extend my heartfelt congratulations to you and your family on the eve of the 74th  Independence Day. We have got this freedom after hundreds of years of efforts and the sacrifice of our lives of millions of young people.”
