Amid the nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, the Chief of Defence Staff, General Bipin Rawat, and the three service chiefs addressed a press conference to express gratitude to the COVID-19 warriors.

“On behalf of armed forces, we want to thank all COVID-19 warriors. Doctors, nurses, sanitation workers, police, home guards, delivery boys and the media, who have been reaching out with the message of government on how to carry on with lives in difficult times,” General Rawat said.

He said that on Sunday, there will be some special activities that the nation will get to witness.

The Air Force will conduct a flypast from Srinagar to Thiruvananthapuram and another one starting from Dibrugarh in Assam to Kutch in Gujarat. It’ll include both transport and fighter aircraft.

“The Army, on its part, will conduct mountain band displays along some of the COVID hospitals in almost every district of our country. The armed forces will also lay wreath at the police memorial on 3 May in support of our police forces,” CDS Rawat, as quoted by ANI

 “The Navy will have its warships deployed in formations in coastal areas in the evening on 3 May. Navy warships would also be lit up and their choppers would be used for showering petals on hospitals,” he added.

“Our police personnel are doing their job very well and they are deployed in the red zone. They are capable of undertaking actions in red zones also. No need has been felt for military deployment so far,” Rawat said.

This was the first time that CDS Rawat was addressing the media, in the presence of the three service chiefs, according to NDTV.
