Army Chief General MM Naravane spoke on the importance of CDS
On Thursday, Army Chief General MM Naravane expressed confidence that the coordination between the three forces under the leadership of the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) will be strengthened and India will be better prepared for everything in the future. General Narwane said that during the 1971 war, three services performed in sync. India won a decisive victory over Pakistan due to the shared personal synergy between the three chiefs.
While referring to the Indian military campaign in the 1971 war, it was a perfect example of what the synergy can get you. This synergy helps you when you have less time.
Your objectives are fulfilled in the shortest possible time. It is the culmination of military prowess. But this was achieved primarily because of the shared personal synergy between the three heads and the tri-service integration, not a matter of chance. This is something that needs to be institutionalized.
