Dr. M.M.A Faridi, principal of Era’s Lucknow Medical College addressed the mourners. During his address all attendees became very sentimental and complete silence descended in the hall when Dr Faridi counted the unfortunate tragic incident that took place near Coonoor, Tamil Nadu.
Dr. Faridi, in the memory of martyred jawans, lighted 14 lamps and offered floral tribute to the departed souls. He described CDS Rawat as a very brave, honest and upright officer who brought several changes in the command of the Army including establishing Jint Command of Armed Forces. His services will be remembered forever. Late Mrs Madhulika Rawat made several schemes for the welfare of the serving and retired Armymen wives and widows being the president of the DWWA.
“The country has lost brave soldiers and this void will be difficult to fill. But they will live in our heart forever,” concludes Dr. Faridi.
