On the occasion of the 52nd anniversary of his supreme sacrifice, Gen. Rawat and his wife Madhulika met Rasoolan Bibi, wife of Company Quartermaster Havildar Hamid, and several other war widows and felicitated them.

The Army chief also unveiled a memorial in Hamid's honour in his ancestral village of Dhamupur in Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh while exhorting the youth to join the armed forces.

Lauding the contribution made by the people of the district to the armed forces, Gen. Rawat said a recruitment drive will be held soon in Ghazipur to encourage the youth to join the Army and contribute to the country's security.
 

Hamid had destroyed several tanks of the Pakistan Army during the 1965 war in the Lahore sector. "Jahan Hindustan ki sena khadi hai, wahan khatra kisi aur se nahi hai (where the Indian Army is present, there is no threat from anyone)," the Army Chief said.
