Army chief foresees women in his position some day in future

Indian Army chief hailed the induction of women cadets in the NDA as the first step towards gender equality in the armed forces

Indian Army chief Gen MM Naravane hailed the induction of women cadets in the National Defence Academy (NDA) as the first step towards gender equality in the armed forces.

“This the first step towards gender equality as women will be trained at NDA and later inducted in the armed forces,” said General Naravane. The army chief was addressing the cadets after reviewing the passing out parade of the 141st course of the NDA in Pune.

The army chief said, “For women’s training, the infrastructure will be a little different, but the training will be the same what is given to men.”

“With modernisation and women being imparted defence training, 40 years down the lane we will see women at my position,” said Gen Naravane.

“As we open the portals of the NDA for women cadets, we expect you to welcome them with the same sense of fair play and professionalism as Indian armed forces are known world over,” Gen Naravane said.

Our editorial on the subject

Last month, the Ministry of Defence had informed the Supreme Court that a notification allowing women candidates to appear for the exam to the NDA will be out by May next year.

However, observing that induction of women to the NDA cannot be postponed by one year, the Supreme Court had allowed female candidates to take the exam in November this year and not wait till May 2022 as requested by the government.

Speaking at the event, Gen Naravane said, “A little over 42 years back, when I stood as a cadet at the same drill square as you stand today, little I could have imagined that I would be reviewing this parade.”

“From here on, you will step into the respective career service academies for more focused military training. You will don different uniforms, but always remember that no single service by itself can fight and win modern wars,” the army chief added.

Sangh parivar collected more than Rs 3,000 crores from Hindus as per media reports & gave that amount to a Sarkari Trust & a Sarkari Construction Committee to construct Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir.

Had Central or State Govt sanctioned Govt funds then they would have deserved credit.
