This move of the Indian Army is also being seen as a strong message to the enemies. Earlier on October 2, the world’s largest Khadi national flag was unfurled in Leh. This flag was 225 feet long and 150 feet wide. This historic event was also organized by the Fire and Fury Corps at Leh Garrison, where a huge national flag was hoisted on behalf of Lieutenant Governor RK Mathur on a high mountain. Army Chief General MM Naravane and Northern Command’s Lieutenant General YK Joshi also attended the event. The Indian Army has organized several programs in the past few months in Ladakh to commemorate 75 years of India’s independence.
