CHANDI­GARH: Gen­eral Of­fi­cer Com­mand­ing-in-Chief (GOCin-C), Western Com­mand, Lt Gen SR Ghosh un­veiled the ‘In­fantry Statue in Vic­tory Mode’ at the Shakti Dwar (main gate of Western Com­mand) on Wed­nes­day.

Lt Gen Ghosh also gave away Army Com­man­der’s Com­men­da­tion Card to Ab­nin­der Singh Gre­wal, the man­u­fac­turer of the statue.

The main en­trance to the Western Com­mand had for years been known as ‘Tank Traf­fic Check Post (TCP)’.

In 2010, soon af­ter as­sum­ing com­mand, Lt Gen Ghosh de­cided to con­vert this en­trance into a vis­i­ble sym­bol of the mil­i­tary might of the Western Army.

The gate was ac­cord­ingly re- chris­tened as ‘Shakti Dwar’.

The two cap­tured Pak­istan Pat­ton tanks with guns low­ered were re­placed by Vi­jayant tanks with their guns raised proudly — sym­bol­is­ing the strike arm of the mech­a­nised for­ma­tions of the Western Army - the 2 Corps.
