Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane on Saturday reasserted the force’s allegiance to the core values of the Constitution and the values of the Preamble. “Justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity as enshrined in Constitution must guide us,” Naravane said in his first press conference since he took charge as the Army Chief on December 31.

Naravane said the focus on the training the forces would henceforth be on future war “which will be network-centric and complex”. “In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment, we must train for the future. That is where the emphasis of our training will be,” he said.

On China enhancing military infrastructure, he said the Army is prepared to deal with challenges along the northern border. “We are initiating rebalancing of preparedness along the northern border, including moving advanced weapon systems,” he said.
