It was an honour to serve in the same regiment as my father, 2nd Sikh. He always inspired me to work tirelessly for the nation. This #FathersDay I pray to the almighty to give me the strength to fulfil his wishes by working towards Punjab’s hopes and aspirations. pic.twitter.com/awyfjhOUs1— Capt.Amarinder Singh (@capt_amarinder) June 17, 2018
My father! Every single day of my life I wonder how much he has sacrificed so that we may live in comfort. He has always been, and still is a rock solid support. He's lived a simple soldier's life & taught me good human values. My salute to him & all dads of the world.#FathersDay pic.twitter.com/uL6DJoVKtL— Rajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) June 17, 2018
