The efforts of the armed forces to stop-cross border terrorism is commendable, he said while speaking on the occasion of Armed Forces Flag Day at the Raj Bhawan here.
"Many of our armed forces personnel have lost their valuable lives on the line of duty and due recognition should be given to them," Mukhi said.
The day provides an opportunity to connect with armed forces personnel, their families and to reciprocate by contributing generously to Armed Forces Flag Day Fund to ensure welfare and rehabilitation of war widows, war wounded and dependants of our fallen soldiers and ex-servicemen, he added.
The Armed Forces Flag Day is observed on December 7 every year across the country since 1949 with an aim to honour the martyrs and the men in uniform.
