Jai Jawan and Jai KisaanI heard,this is a slogan coined by one of the Ex. Prime Ministers of India, Mr.Lal Bahadur Sastry.
In his very small tenure as PM he had to face a war. He understood the importance of both soldiers and farmers for our country and he coined this slogan. We shall appreciate his wisdom.
Both soldiers and farmers are very important even today also. But unfortunately no political party is caring for these two. Many farmers are dying by committing suicide. They are unable to face the financial problems and going to that extent. No one worried about this.
Soldiers are sacrificing their lives to keep India independent. Day in and Day out they are at the point of gun of the rivals. They don't know whether they can survive and see their families again. But they continue their service.
Our the so called MPs and MLAs will get pensions through out their life if they are in that post for 5 years. A soldier has to spend minimum 20 years in service to become eligible for pension.
Then are we really thinking that Jai Jawan and Jai Kisaan or simply using as a routine
