Governor Lieutenant General Gurmit Singh (Retd) addressed the Defense Services officers undergoing training at the College of Defense Management, Secunderabad, Telangana on Thursday. Governor Lieutenant General Gurmit Singh (Retd) said that the College of Defense Management is playing an important role in developing high management skills and leadership abilities among the officers of the Indian Armed Forces. He said that military officers need to be proficient in high level management skills. They also need to have effective decision making abilities. Military officers are natural leaders. They have to contribute constructively in nation building and service to the society even after retirement. Governor Lieutenant General Gurmit Singh (Retd) said that it is a matter of pride that at present, the Sainyabhoomi of Uttarakhand is his Karma Bhoomi. Rich in natural beauty, forest and water resources and honest, hardworking and high quality human resources, Uttarakhand state has its own identity in the country and the world. One person from every family of the state is in the defense of the country. This is an example not only for the country but for the world that how the military traditions in Uttarakhand are passed on from generation to generation. The Governor said that now daughters are also being encouraged for military services in the state. Hope that in future more and more daughters of Uttarakhand will also contribute in the defense service of the country.
