Public should be aware of misleading comments about the Army : CoAS Sharma
Earlier in February, the welfare board organized a similar ex-army conference at Midwest Regional Headquarter in Butwal. Around 4,000 retired personnel attended the event.
While addressing the mass, CoAS sharma had emphasized that the “general public should be alert and aware of misleading comments that downplays the Nepali Army’s role, functions, and contributions to the nation.”
“The nation looks for the contribution of the army personnel even after retirement. I believe former military men would work to help the society move forward by making full use of the knowledge, skills, and arts that they learned while in service,” CoAS Sharma said.
