How the Indian Army benefited from anti-corona measures in dealing with China, General Naravane told


Anti-corona measures have also proved to be very helpful for the Indian Army in dealing with the crisis with China in East Ladakh. Chief of Army Staff General Manoj Mukund Naravane said on Wednesday that the measures taken by the Indian Army in the initial phase of last year to protect its soldiers from Kovid-19 have benefited in dealing with the Chinese aggression in eastern Ladakh. He said that this was the period when preparations were made at the highest level.

Let us inform that after the lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of corona virus in the country in March last year, the Indian Army took strict measures to prevent the spread of Kovid among its soldiers. During the lockdown, the interaction of the jawans with the outside world was reduced to a great extent. Soon after this, differences started with China on the northern borders in eastern Ladakh.

Addressing an event to ‘Win the War of the 21st Century’ in Delhi, the Chief of Army Staff said that the Indian Army was prepared to deal with all contingencies (due to the anti-Covid measures). When the crisis developed along our borders in Eastern Ladakh, our decisions regarding the security of the force benefited us, as we were in a high state of operational preparedness.


He said that as soon as tension-like situation prevailed on our northern borders, the jawans reached the spot. He had full faith in his leaders. They were ready to go with all the challenges and difficulties to achieve their objectives through the available resources. General Naravane further said that all this was possible because we already had a war game of possible contingencies and possible options.

General Naravane said that the protection of force does not mean that we were only taking care of ourselves. He said that the Indian Army prides itself as a civilian army, which is committed to the safety of our people. On our part, we have actively contributed to the government’s efforts to address this challenge.
