For the first time, 341 women joined the Navy: Navy Chief said - Soon there will be women in every branch, recruitment under Agniveer scheme
Navy Chief Admiral R Hari Kumar said on Saturday that for the first time we have included women in the Navy. Under the Agniveer scheme, 341 women have been recruited in the Navy. Women officers will also be inducted into the Navy next year. So far, a total of 3000 Agniveers have been inducted into the Navy. In this way, the first batch of Agniveers has been prepared. The Navy Chief said these things in a press conference a day before Navy Day. He told that now all the branches of the Navy will be open for all. Also, we are looking at inducting women officers in all branches by 2023 and not just 7-8 branches which are limited to date.
The Navy Chief has assured the government that it will become 'self-reliant' by 2047. He said that we are keeping an eye on China's activities in the Indian Ocean region. Due to the increased tension between India and China in the last year, the importance of maritime security has become very important.
He told that India is preparing to buy a Predator drone from America to keep an eye on China. India will buy 30 MQ-9B Predator drones at a cost of US$3 billion. Please tell that the Hellfire missile was launched through these drones. At the same time, Al-Qaeda terrorist Al-Zawahiri was also killed through this drone.
