The Indian Army is set to hold a joint military exercise with their British counterparts at Belgaum from April 3 to April 29.
More than 100 officers and soldiers from both the armies will take part in the the military exercise which will be conducted at the MLIRC.
In the past Belgaum has played a host to numerous a joint military exercise with foreign armies like USA, UK, France, Mongolia & China.
The New Indian Express in a special story, states and we quote “ India might be embarrassed, if the British troops arriving in Belgaum for a month-long joint exercise with the Indian Army return without firing a single bullet, thanks to the state government’s November 2012 decision denotifying the Bagdad Asmara Field Firing Range.”
The New Indian Express further quotes MP Suresh Angadi- “I am not aware of the joint exercise. The state government circular clearly says that they can’t fire even a single bullet. The Army has been shown another place for the range and they should move on.”
