Jammu: Prime Minister remembers two sons of Nowshera, said – by helping the army even at a young age, the identity of a child soldier was made

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday also remembered two sons of Nowshera in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajori district while interacting with the National Children Awardees. Both of them had helped the army despite their young age in the battle fought on the soil of the state after independence and were successful in smothering the opponents.


Modi said that I had gone to Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Diwali last year. There I met such heroes named Baldev Singh and Basant Singh who had played the role of child soldiers in the war that took place on the soil of Kashmir immediately after independence. Now his age is very old then he was very young. For the first time in our army, he was identified as a child soldier. He had helped the army at such a young age without caring about his life.
