New Delhi, 14 October
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday remembered former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s role in not only leading the country for many years, but also in times of war.
In an address at a Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) symposium on the role of women in the armed forces, the defense minister was referring to the 1971 war with Pakistan when Indira was prime minister. Rajnath Singh cited the example of Rani Laxmi Bai for women taking up arms to defend the rights of their country and people.

Outlining the concept of security, he said that changing the nature of war is bringing danger from the borders within the society. “Terrorism is the most obvious and diabolical manifestation of this reality. It has been employed as the weapon of choice by non-state actors and irresponsible states alike to further their political objectives. The SCO as an organization has categorically rejected terrorism in all its forms and forms,” he said, adding that “this battle cannot be won by half the population… Women are also in this fight within the armed forces and There will be equal contributors outside them. .” — TNS
