Dehradun IMA today Modi Arrived Photo & Pics
Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Dehradun on Saturday to inaugurate the Combined Commanders Conference, an official said. The Prime Minister earlier reached the Indian Military Academy (IMA) campus from the Jolly Grant airport in a special Indian Air Force (IAF) chopper.
The military conference was being attended by the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, the Indian Army, Indian Air Force and Indian Navy chiefs, besides the National Security Advisor and other experts in the field of security and defence.
The Prime Minister laid a wreath at Shaheed Smarak (Martyrs Memorial) at IMA after which he crossed over the Chatwood Square where he was accorded the traditional salute by the three armed forces. He then drove to the Khetrapal Auditorium where he will address the conference.
The EC conditions had come after the Indian National Congress complained to the Commission that the Bharatiya Janata Party may use the event to influence former and serving defence personnel to gain an upper hand in the five poll-bound states — Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur, Punjab and Goa.
