Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will inaugurate the Commanders’ conference of the Indian Air Force (IAF) in New Delhi on Thursday. Security challenges of the country, including the standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), are expected to be discussed during the three-day bi-annual conference.
“A series of discussions would be conducted over a period of three days to address strategies and policies related to capabilities that would give the IAF a significant edge over its adversaries,” the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said in a statement. “Various welfare and human resource measures to improve HR and administrative efficiency will also be discussed,” the MoD statement further said.
According to official sources, cited by news agencies, the situation in eastern Ladakh, the site of the Sino-India border standoff, will also be discussed during the conference besides the overall capabilities of the IAF to deal with situations along the de-facto boundary between the two countries.
