Speaking to media Shri Tarun Vijay said that gradually the soldier's exalted position in society is being hurt by so called secular politicians who treat them at par with other professions. While a soldier's status is completely different from every other profession, he is a cut above all. To instil the feeling of respect and honour for our forces amongst the youngsters he has organised the Cycle rally with young students.
