“Our intelligence based and people-friendly operations in the north-east have managed to limit terrorism to a large extent”.
Flagging concern, Rawat stated, “social media is being used against us, we have to be careful in its use”.
Earlier in a day, the Army Chief presented gallantry award and other awards to his personnel at the Cariappa Parade Ground in New Delhi.
Army Day marks the day field Marshal KM Cariappa took over as the first Indian Army Chief in 1949. Since then, the country celebrates the occasion with parades and shows.
