GUWAHATI: Hailing the ‘josh’ of the army jawans guarding the Indo-China border in Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat on Saturday said that nothing can deter the Indian Armed Forces from remaining steadfast in their call for duty.
On completion of one year in office, General Rawat made a visit to the northeast and visited the forward military bases along the China border in Arunachal Pradesh and Assam on Saturday.
General Rawat said, “Only Indian soldiers could remain vigilant under such challenging situations. Our soldiers are ever ready to go beyond the call of duty to safeguard the borders of the nation.”
He assessed the various measures adopted by troops to maintain effective surveillance and enhanced operational readiness along the borders.
Last year on the same day, General Bipin Rawat was appointed as the Chief of Defence Staff.
