Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said that no matter how many challenges the army faced with patience and bravery. The army has constantly changed with the new times. Security challenges have also increased in the last 6-7 decades. The challenges that have been seen in ten years have not been seen even in the last hundred years. Regarding the new war of new technology, the Defense Minister said that drones are being used in the world. Underwater drones are running. The use of artificial intelligence has increased and the Indian Army is also changing itself. From Kargil to Galvan and now in Tawang, the way Indian soldiers showed bravery, it has strengthened the faith in the hearts of the people of the country.
India’s stature increased in the world
The Defense Minister also mentioned the increasing popularity of India in the world. He said that India’s stature has increased in the world.

The war was suspended for a few hours and it was possible to evacuate the Indians. This shows that India’s stature has increased on the international stage.
