Army Chief Praises New Government's 'Decisiveness'

A few days before retirement, Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh praised the "decisiveness" of the NDA government at a tea party held for him by Defence Minister Arun Jaitley.

Gen Singh praised the decisiveness of the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the function attended by top officials of the Ministry including Defence Secretary RK Mathur and other senior officials yesterday, Defence Ministry officials said.

The Army chief said in the brief period in which he got to work with the NDA government, he was impressed by the government's decisiveness, they said.

Soon after assuming office, the NDA government has cleared several projects for the armed forces including environmental clearances required for the construction of roads in border areas along the border with China.

Going by the advice of the Army, the government also ruled out any change in the controversial Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act imposed in Jammu and Kashmir in the first meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) of the Narendra Modi government.
