“Addressed the Army Commanders’ Conference in New Delhi today. I’m extremely proud of the initiatives undertaken by the Indian Army in the current security environment,” the Defence Minister tweeted.

Lauding the Army, Singh said the Indian Army has been successful in addressing several challenges to the security and sovereignty of the country since Independence.

“Be it the problem of terrorism, insurgency or any external attack, the Army has played a significant role in neutralising those threats,” he added.

In another tweet, Singh said, “The Ministry of Defence is committed to facilitate the Army in their forward movement on road to reforms and help them in achieving advantages in all areas. We will leave no stone unturned to strengthen the arms of our Armed forces.”

Reportedly, the Defence Minister’s address at the four-day-long Army Commander’s Conference was scheduled for October 27 but was postponed and rescheduled for today.

At the second day of the conference today, top Army commanders carried out a review of India’s combat readiness in the eastern Ladakh region including other sensitive areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) amid the border standoff with China.

Earlier on Monday, the deliberations were held on concerns related to human resource management, which was addressed by CDS General Bipin Rawat.
