Induction of women officers in the armed forces will boost India’s strength: PM Modi in Kargil

 Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, said on Monday that the induction of women officers will boost the country’s strength. He highlighted the reforms in the armed forces by the Centre.

The Prime Minister landed in Kargil on Monday to celebrate Diwali with soldiers. For me, all of you have been my family for years now. “It is a privilege to spend Diwali with our brave jawans in Kargil,” Prime Minister Modi said.

Over the last eight years, we have placed emphasis on implementing reforms in the armed forces. We have opened positions in the armed forces to women. Women’s power will strengthen our armed forces. “The induction of women officers under a “permanent commission” will result in the growth of our power,” he said.

“A nation is safe when the border is secure, the economy is strong, and the society is full of confidence.” President Modi described the armed forces as the foundation of the country’s safety and security.

From this victorious land of Kargil, I wish my countrymen and the world a very happy Diwali. There has not been a single war with Pakistan where Kargil has not hoisted the flag of victory. Diwali means’ festival of the end of terror’, and Kargil made it possible. “Our Army in Kargil crushed the fountainhead of terror and people till date remember the Diwali of victory the country celebrated,” the Prime Minister said.

“Just like all of you are protecting us at the borders, we are working within the country to fight evils like terrorism, Naxalism, and corruption.” “Naxawad has taken a huge part of the nation in its grasp, but today that stretch is rapidly decreasing,” PM Modi said.

“India’s respect has increased across the world. It is happening because India is standing successfully against its internal and external enemies, “he added.

The PM said that the centre is developing high-tech infrastructure in the border areas with seamless connectivity.

“I commend all the three armed forces who have decided that over 400 types of defence equipment will not be imported but rather be built in India. When our jawans fight with made-in-India weapons, they will not only feel proud but also have an element of surprise to defeat the enemy, “he said. 
PM Modi said when India’s strength rises, it is beneficial for global peace and prosperity.
