Modi says India has no War Memorials, here’s a quick refresher on India’s War Memorials for Mr Bluff Master

On January 27th, 2014, Mr Modi was in Mumbai to felicitate legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar on the 51st anniversary of her song ‘Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon’ sung as a tribute to India’s soldiers who died in the 1961 war with China. Addressing an audience primarily from the armed forces at Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Race Course, the 63-year-old leader said:

There is no country in the world where there is not a war memorial. India has fought many wars and thousands of our soldiers have lost their lives fighting for the country, but there is no memorial to honour their sacrifice

He further stated:

Should we not remember them? Should not there be a war memorial? I feel some good things have been left for me to do

One one hand, while, Mr Modi seems to pretty upbeat about his chances after the latest opinion polls, we want to remind him what a fiasco the opinion polls turned out for NDA in the 2009 elections – Managed opinion polls do not fetch votes.

On the other hand, Mr Modi continues to live up to his nickname “Feku” when he declares that India does not have war memorials. Here’s a quick refresher for Mr Modi.

Regarding Jammu war memorial.. read this……. “It was made by the Army but at the time of inauguration, it was handed over to the state administration. Army is providing security to the memorial, but the maintenance and internal security is the duty of the state administration,” said S N Acharya, Officiating PRO Defence.
Whereas, the Divisional Commissioner, Pradeep Gupta, astonishingly said, “As per my knowledge, it is with the Army only; if they have handed over to the state administration, please ask them, which department has taken it from them.”

ChauriChora war memorial… “A visit to the site reveals some interesting fact. The monument in the memory of the martyrs was built in 1972 by the people but later Prime Minister Narsimha Rao inaugurated the monument on July 19th, 1993. It was shocking that before that no efforts were made by the government and the people of Chauri Chaura actually built the monument themselves.”

Challenging Modi’s knowledge of history or for that matter ,Parivaar is an insult to my knowledge of history…. Read the greatest Feku of all time: http://www.frontline.in/static/html/fl1720/17200040.htm……Having said that Christians and Muslims are not son of the soil…..they made horse out of bull, to claim that they were not the nomads who came from central asia…I do not not know how many understand this.

one of the things left for Modi to do is to build a ‘memorial of burning train at GODHRA’ , the single luckiest EVENT which lifted Modi to sky high in national and international fame. !!!
