Defence minister Rajnath Singh on Friday addressed top commanders of the Army and drew their attention to the likely use of unconventional weapons in the future, a statement said.
Calling jointness as the operational necessity, Singh exhorted the Army to take lead towards achieving this. He reiterated the role of the Chief of Defence Staff in synergising the efforts of the three services.
The defence minister also touched upon niche technology areas like cyberspace, information warfare and perception management domains and highlighted the need to address the concerns of perimeter security, cantonment discipline and tri-service jointness.
Talking on defence preparedness, Singh assured that there will be no criticalities. However, he also apprised the field commanders on the constraints of the budget.
