DM Jaitley says Army has outperformed itself, modernisation of defence equipment Top priority

Modernisation of defence equipment is the top most priority for the government, defence minister Arun Jaitley said on Monday as he addressed the Army Commanders’ Conference in New Delhi.

The minister “complemented the senior military hierarchy” and said “whenever the challenges multiply or their nature changes, Indian Army has always outperformed itself”, an official statement said.

Army chief General Bipin Rawat said all “systems” were working well and complimented all those who are working on the ground.

He observed that the Indian Army continues to hold a strong image and a professional reputation and asked all ranks to endeavour to further strengthen the same.

Top commanders of the army are meeting in the national capital from April 17-22.

The commanders will deliberate upon the prevailing security scenario, strategic and actionable issues to ensure an effective combat edge for the army.
