Jai Jawan Jai Kisan was a slogan given to India by then Prime Minister of India Lal Bahadur Shastri in 1965. It means hail the soldier and hail the farmer. Soon after Shastri took over the prime ministership of India after Nehru's death India was attacked by Pakistan . At the same time there was scarcity of foodgrains in country. Shastri gave the slogan Jai Jawan Jai Kisan to enthuase the soldiers to defend India and simultaneously cheering farmers to do their best to increase the production of foodgrains to reduce dependence on import .It became a very popular slogan .

After Pokaran tests in 1998 Vajpayee added Jai Vighyan (Hail science) to the slogan to underline the importance of science in India' progress.
