Prime Minister Narendra Modi has offered a prayer for the health of a citizen, Mrs. Shamima, and her newborn baby, after the Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir locals came to her rescue when she was in need of emergency hospitalisation, on the cusp of delivery, but was separated from the required medical services due to snow.
The PM also lauded the efforts of the Army, who had once again shown bravery and an indomitable will to go beyond the call of duty to help citizens despite testing conditions.
Our Army is known for its valour and professionalism. It is also respected for its humanitarian spirit. Whenever people have needed help, our Army has risen to the occasion and done everything possible!— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) January 15, 2020
Proud of our Army.
I pray for the good health of Shamima and her child. https://t.co/Lvetnbe7fQ
In a tweet posted on Tuesday evening by the Chinar Corps of the Indian army, a video showed Indian army personnel carrying a person on their shoulders, in a litter. The tweet said that the personnel and the civilians had carried the expecting mother for over four hours in heavy snow. The efforts were successful since Mrs Shamima delivered the baby successfully and both, the mother and the baby, are healthy.
