Can Army be used for civilian purposes?The construction of the recently collapsed bridge at Mumbai's Elphinstone Railway Station was given to the Army. The Chief Minister Fadnavis, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal and the Defence Minister Nirmala Sitaraman announced the decision. The Government of India has accepted the proposal. They praised the Army for coming to the help of the nation.
The job of the Army is to train for the protection of the country from the attacks of other countries. Do you think it as an insult to the Army to employ it in civilian works? The Army is deployed whenever there is a natural disaster in the country and it is understandable. Is it a good decision by the Government to use the Army for civilian construction works?
