After Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju is the latest to use the catchphrase ‘How’s the Josh’ from the film Uri: The Surgical Strike.
While visiting the Mountaineering and Skiing Institute at Auli, the Minister of State for Home Affairs decided to test drive the vehicle himself. In a video shared by the minister, Rijiju is seen riding the snowmobile in the picturesque terrain.
In his tweet, the minister wrote, “How’s the Josh? High sir! The morale of our jawans remain high all the time!”
