He said that we are duty bound for the security of the nation. I am fully conscious of my duties. Every soldier is equal in my eyes. Every individual, every soldier in the Army counts irrespective of the arms or service he may belong to. Because it is the contribution of every soldier that makes the Army efficient and strong. So, I would like to use this opportunity to convey the rank and file in the Army that everyone in the Army, wherever or whoever may be is equal in my eyes based on the task they are required to perform.
He also promised to take care of the welfare of the families of the martyrs and those who got disabled. He said that Indian Army works under a vision and well defined strategy. The priorities are already set and he will carry them forward. General Rawat said that India wants peace but it does not mean we are weak. If need be, we will not retreat from using might.
