A few hours ago, reports came out that Bipin Rawat, the Indian Chief of Defence Staff would be addressing the public in a press conference. It was also said that he would have three serving military chiefs present alongside him during the press conference.
This would certainly be unique to witness considering how this is the first time that the Chief of Defence Staff, a post which oversees the three wings of the armed forces and integrates them into one was to be speaking to the media.
In reports last week, General Rawat had also commented on how the defence services “must operate beyond the mandate to support the people and government in whatever way we can,” in this time of the coronavirus crisis.

It’s really good to see the nation heads come forward to acknowledge and motivate the citizens, especially with the recent news of an extension in lockdown.
