The chief minister urged people to come out with voluntary donations for the Flag Day, which will be celebrated across the country on Thursday, and said the money would be used for the rehabilitation of war widows, disabled defence personnel and ex-servicemen.
"On this Flag Day, let us strive to help the families of our brave soldiers who attained martyrdom in the defence and honour of the motherland," he said.
Noting that India would forever remain indebted to the valour and commitment of its soldiers, Singh said any contribution to the Flag Day Fund would be seen as a token of respect for the outstanding services rendered by the armed forces.
The Indian Armed Forces Flag Day is observed every year on December 7 since 1949 to honour the soldiers, airmen and sailors of India.
