New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who paid his tribute to the Kargil martyrs in the tenth edition of his 'Mann Ki Baat' programme, said the battle was not just fought on borders, but every village and city contributed in it.

He said that every soldier is attached with the country just as a farmer is attached to his land.

"My beloved citizens, 26th July is being celebrated as Kargil Vijay Diwas. Just as a farmer is connected with his land, similarly a soldier is attached with his country......I salute these soldiers, who make all efforts to restrict the enemy's effort without caring about their lives. The Kargil battle was not just fought on borders, India's every village, city and town has made a contribution to that," he said.

The Prime Minister's 'Mann Ki Baat' programme aims to deliver his voice to the general masses of the country since television connection is still not available everywhere, especially in the rural regions of remote locations.
