Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has appealed to people to donate generously to the Armed Forces Flag Day fund for the welfare of soldiers and ex- servicemen.
Exhorting people to come out with voluntary donations to the fund to mark on Flag Day tomorrow, the chief minister said the money would be used for the rehabilitation of war widows, disabled defence personnel and ex-servicemen.
"On this Flag Day, let us strive to help the families of our brave soldiers who attained martyrdom in the defence and honour of the motherland," he said in a message.
Any contribution to the fund would be a token of respect towards the outstanding services rendered by valiant soldiers, who zealously guard the country's borders round the clock, he said.
Flag Day in India is observed every year on December 7.
