Most of his ministerial colleagues, including the prime minister, are neck deep in the election campaign, so it's good to see Defence Minister Rajnath Singh busy at work.

On Monday, April 22, 2024, the raksha mantri interacted with soldiers deployed at the Kumar post at the Siachen base camp and called the Siachen Glacier India's capital of valour and bravery.
