Chandigarh, May 26, 2022: The history of India is replete with the heroic saga of the martyrs. The bravery of BSF Deputy Commandant Sukhbir Singh Yadav, who was martyred in the Kargil war, is one of them. It is so gladdening that the road from Hero Honda Chowk to Basai Chowk in Gurugram has been named as Shaheed Sukhbir Singh Yadav Marg. This was stated by Haryana Governor Shri Bandaru Dattatraya today after inaugurating Balidani Sukhbir Singh Yadav Marg in Gurugram.
Shri Dattatraya, while paying tributes to all martyrs of the country while speaking in the program organized in the memory of Shaheed Sukhbir Singh Yadav on the day he made the supreme sacrifice for the nation, at Alpine Convent School, Sector 10, Gurugram, said that the brave sons of Haryana have never shied away from sacrificing their lives in protecting the border of the nation. Their indomitable courage and valour are always remembered.
The Governor said that Shaheed Sukhbir Singh Yadav, who was born on December 12, 1961, attained martyrdom on May 26, 1999 while fighting the enemies in Kargil. He said that he was the husband of former MP Dr Sudha Yadav, who later made public service her goal. He said that Dr Yadav is bearing the education expenses of the children of 25 poor families of her village, which is a true tribute to Shaheed Sukhbir Singh Yadav.
Lauding the Central and the state governments for taking care of families of our martyrs, Shri Dattatraya said that we should never hesitate in extending every possible help to the families of our martyrs. They are the real heroes and we should take pride in standing by them in all circumstances, he said.
Shri Dattatraya said that in order to maintain the unity and integrity of India, our forces are keeping a watchful eye on the borders of Pakistan and China.
