” We would certainly still such as to preserve that we are a 21st-century Army. To begin going back to clubs as well as barbed wires is returning to primitive times. It is an extremely regressive method of going. We would certainly still such as to keep that in warfare additionally there are particular policies. It is not that you do whatever you intend to do. We would certainly still such as to preserve an expert position. Consequently, instead of consider wielding clubs, we rather open fire,” he claimed in ‘Podcast with Smita Prakash’.

Hooliganism and also streetfighting? Or they are a specialist 21st-century military? On one side they attempt to reveal their technical expertise, on the other side they are including barbed cord clubs. It is absurd,” the former Army Chief said.
