The security cover of our jawans ‘Maa Bharti’: PM Modi

Increasing participation of women in the military

Now state-of-the-art weapons are being made inside the country. The PM also expressed happiness over the increasing participation of women in the army. He told that now girls are being given full opportunity in NDA and other military schools also. Now his activism in the army has increased a lot.

We have to adapt our preparations according to the rapid changes taking place in the world.
You did not come to serve in the army, this is sadhana – PM

It is a sadhana for you to join the army, just like sages and sages used to do sadhna, I am seeing the form of that seeker inside your heart. You are doing sadhna of Maa Bharati.
