Delhi University students march to express solidarity with Indian soldiers

DU students light candles in honour of CRPF jawans, who were martyred in the line of duty at Pulwama in Kashmir.

Thousands of students from the University of Delhi participated in a candle light procession to express solidarity with the families of soldiers martyred in the suicide attack at Pulwama on February 14, 2019. The procession aptly named “Solidarity March” was taken out to raise awareness about the National Defence Fund among general public.

The National Defence Fund takes voluntary donations from general public that is used on welfare of the members of Armed Forces, Para Military Forces and their dependents. The Fund is administered by an executive committee that is headed by Prime Minister as its Chairperson. Defence, Finance and Home Ministers are the other members of this fund. Accounts of the National Defence Fund are kept with the Reserve Bank of India. This fund is entirely dependent on voluntary contributions from the public and does not get any budgetary support.

DU students take out a ‘Solidarity March’ to raise awareness about the National Defence Fund. Money from this fund is used on the welfare of soldiers and their families.

40 CRPF jawans have been martyred and several others seriously injured when a suicide bomber rammed his car laden with around 250 kilogram explosives into the CRPF convoy at Pulwama. A wave of anger has swept through the nation after this brazen suicide attack on our soldiers by Pakistan-backed Kashmiri terrorist. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised countrymen that India will give a befitting reply to Pakistan and to the terrorists being nurtured by its Army and ISI.

Most of the martyred Indian soldiers in the Pulwama attack were sole bread earners in their family. Delhi University students have taken it upon themselves to create awareness that people donate generously for the welfare of soldiers’ families such that their children’s education and sustenance needs can be met honourably.

Yes, we will remember our heroes.
