To lend a helping hand for the government in the fight against the pandemic Covid-19, the Indian Army came up with a new operation called ‘Operation Namaste’. Talking about this Army Chief General MM Naravane said that its the responsibility of his force to help the government in fighting the deadly virus.  

The General asked his troops who were deployed at the Line of Control (LOC) or Line of Actual Control (LAC) to not worry about their loved ones and the operation will be executed successfully.

"In this fight against coronavirus, it is our responsibility to help the government and civil administration. As an Army Chief, it is my priority to keep my force protected and fit too. We can serve in our duties only when we are ourselves protected from coronavirus," Gen Naravane said.

"I am sure we will succeed in Operation Namaste. We have established command wise helplines, any of our personnel can approach them to seek help. Further, the families can also go and visit the nearest Army camp in case any problem emerges. This message is also for the veterans," he added.
