Govt has taken evolutionary path to ensure equal participation of women in Armed Forces: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh

@rajnathsingh
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh today said government has taken evolutionary path to ensure equal participation of women in Armed Forces. Delivering the inaugural address at Shanghai Cooperation Organisation webinar on ‘Role of Women in Armed Forces’, he said, women have been serving with pride in Indian Military Nursing Service for over 100 years now. Indian Army had commenced commissioning women officers in 1992. The Minister said from next year, women shall be able to join the premier tri-service training institute, the National Defence Academy. He wished to see women officers from SCO nations in the Officer Training Academy, Chennai.

Mr Singh emphasized that the concept of security is undergoing a paradigm shift. He said the changing character of war is bringing threats from nations’s borders to within the society. He said terrorism is just the most obvious and diabolical manifestation of this reality.
