When was the kargil war fought?
The Kargil War between India and Pakistan and operation carried out to clear the area has been termed as “Operation Vijay”. After Pakistan faced defeat in 1971, Indo-Pak War, the conflicts between both the countries have been increasing day by day.

When was the kargil war fought?
It was quite difficult for Indian Army to put Pakistan in back foot and forced to return, as they were having a benefit of being at the safe point and can see each activity of the Indian Forces. So, without making too much delay, the Indian Army has been supported by the Indian Air Force. It helped India to recapture the majority of sites on the Indian side of the LOC infiltrated by the Pakistan Soldiers and militants.
Due to International intervention in the war between India and Pakistan, the diplomatic intervention compelled Pakistan forces to take their feet back from the Indian Territory and the LOC. During the phase of the Kargil War, the President of India was ‘K. R. Narayanan’, Prime Minister was ‘Atal Bihari Vajpayee’ whereas, the Indian Army Chief was ‘Ved Prakash Malik’, they all together put forward a firm hand with the Indian Army to make Pakistan go back or die.
