"We saw that the 'Amar Jawan Jyoti' near India Gate and the Jyoti lit at the 'National War Memorial' in the vicinity, were merged. There were tears in the eyes of many countrymen and martyr families on this emotional occasion," Modi said.

"I would urge all of you to visit the National War Memorial," he added.

"The contribution and inspiration of martyrs is eternal, much like the flame of the Amar Jawan Jyoti," PM Modi said.

We saw that the 'Amar Jawan Jyoti' near India Gate and the Jyoti lit at the 'National War Memorial' nearby were merged.
