Rangapahar Military Station celebrated ‘Vijay Diwas’ on 16 December to commemorate the India’s historical victory over Pakistan in the 1971 war. On this day in 1971, the Commander of the Pakistani forces, Lieutenant General Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi, along with 93,000 troops, had surrendered unconditionally to the gallant Indian Armed forces and the victory led to the liberation of Bangladesh.
As part of these celebrations, a number of activities were organised. The day started with Lt Gen Rajeev Sirohi, AVSM, VSM, Officers and troops paying rich tributes at the war memorial for the Martyrs who laid down their lives during the war. They further took a pledge to protect the country at all costs from external aggressions and internal threats.
Special screening of a movie on the 1971 War was also organised in the Manekshaw auditorium for the Veterans, Civil dignitaries and Army personnel who witnessed the courage of the brave soldiers and their selfless sacrifices. The Veterans were then invited to recount their experiences of the war, whose stories of valour, courage and bravery against all odds were truly inspirational.
GOC, Spear Corps, then felicitated the Veterans and expressed his gratitude for their contribution in India’s ‘Finest Hour’. The Veterans also interacted with the troops motivating them to make every sacrifice to keep the country safe.
