“Captain Bana Singh, a Param Vir Chakra winner who hoisted the tricolour on the icy heights of Siachen, is an inspiration to me and every patriot,” Rahul Gandhi added in his tweet.

For his assistance in “Operation Rajiv,” Captain Bana Singh (Retired) received the Param Vir Chakra, the highest gallantry medal.

“Bharat Jodo Yatra coming to Kashmir is a huge thing, in fact, the yatra should have started from here only to unite the nation. This is the only reason I came from Shiv Sena’s side because we want the nation to unite,” Mr Raut said.
