    This is a great achievement but a very small coverage has been extended to such an important news. Even the announcement of one crore prize money offered by Himachal government is not mentioned. Why such poor treatment to this great himachali hero?

    Vijay! You deserve much more.You have made Himachal proud. Hats off to you! Hats off to Indian Army!
