They also shared a few images of the installed tower with the post.
“BSNL with Siachen Warriors installs first-ever mobile tower at Siachen Glacier. Now our heroes can talk to their near and dear ones at their convenience. Kudos to @BSNLCorporate and #SiachenWarriors,” wrote Devusinh Chauhan, Union Minister of State for Communications.
“These are photos shared by @devusinh of the first ever mobile tower installed in Siachen! A seemingly small event in our turbulent world. But it means our Jawans who put their lives on the line every single day on the world’s highest battlefield to defend us are now strongly connected to their families. For them, this device is as important as the Vikram Lander. To me, this is really BIG news. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽,” wrote Anand Mahindra on X.
