The Modi government has provided full health cover to the families of the armed forces under which family members can easily avail it through a card. Since 2014, the security of the country's borders has been taken seriously by the Government of India. Wherever there was an attempt to encroach on the border, we have retaliated immediately. India has conveyed the message that no one can take our border and our jawans lightly.'
