Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa has written a personal letter to each officer in the Indian Air Force (IAF), asking the officers to be prepared for operations with our present holdings, at a very short notice and asked to focus on training in that direction.
There are doubts about an impending war due to the increasing number of terror attacks on military camps and the rising public unrest in Jammu and Kashmir. The letter has been posted and delivered to each of the nearly 12,000 officers of the force.
While Indian Air Force described the letter as ‘internal communication’, this is the first time that an IAF chief has written a personal letter to all officers. Two Army Chiefs have earlier written such letters in the past in 1950 and 1986.
