‘In the days to come…’: PM Modi remembers Gen Rawat, others who died in chopper crash


The entire nation witnessed the hard work of India’s first chief of defence staff General Bipin Rawat for making the country’s security forces self-reliant, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday. Extending his condolences to the families of all those who died in the chopper crash in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday, PM Modi said the demise of Gen Bipin Rawat is a loss to every patriot.

Referring to Gen Rawat’s effort to strengthen the coordination between the Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force, the prime minister said the campaign will continue to move swiftly in order to make the security forces ‘Aatmanirbhar’.

“Wherever General Bipin Rawat maybe, in the days to come, he will see India moving ahead with new resolutions,” the prime minister said.

“India is mourning but despite being in pain, neither do we stop our pace nor our development. India won’t stop. India won’t be at a standstill. Together, we Indians will work hard & face every challenge inside and outside the country,” he added.
