Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said today that patriotism is a sacred feeling and should be propagated among the younger generation by spreading awareness about the sacrifices made by martyrs.
He was speaking at a function held at the court complex in Poonch to unveil the statue of late Vijay Kumar Paul, a senior member of the judiciary who was killed by unidentified gunmen some years back.
The deputy chief minister said it was imperative to pay homage to the martyrs who make the supreme sacrifice for the nation.
"Patriotism is the most sacred feeling and the onus lies on us to ensure that it is properly propagated among the younger generation and the posterity," he said.
