Addressing Army, Air Force and ITBP personnel during his surprise visit to Ladakh, he said India's resolve for "atmanirbhar Bharat" (self-reliant India) becomes stronger because of you and your strong resolve. "India will defend every stone every inch of its territory". "Our enemies have seen your fire and also your fury", said the PM, wearing a 14 Corps cap. "In past centuries expansionism has hurt the world the most". This is an era of development. History is a witness that expansionist forces have either lost or were forced to turn back,"PM Modi said".

He said the local councillors of Ladakh, including BJP councillors, had submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister in February about the capture of our land by China. Modi also met soldiers who were injured in the skirmish in a hospital in Leh. "I pay homage to mother India and to the mothers of all those courageous soldiers and security personnel who serve India with unparalleled diligence", said Modi.

He also called on India to "work with China to safeguard the overall situation". "We have always worked for the betterment of humanity", he said.
