Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan

During 22nd day of Indo-Pak War, on 19th October 1965 at Urwa, Allahabad Shastriji, the man of masses, gave the famous slogan to the nation, ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’.


There was scarcity of food grains in the country. Shastri Ji gave the slogan Jai Jawan Jai Kisan to enthuse the soldiers to defend India and simultaneously cheering farmers to do their best to increase the production of food grains to reduce dependence on import. It became a very popular slogan.

Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan
