Army chief assures troops are disciplined

AAArmyday_1Army Commander Lieutenant General Crishanthe De Silva today assured that the troops in the Sri Lanka army are well disciplined and professional in their conduct.

Speaking to reporters after visiting the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy the army commander said that he will continue to ensure the army remains a disciplined unit.

The army will celebrate its 66th anniversary next month and a series of religious events are being held ahead of the main celebrations.

  1. Any human organisation is not perfect and there will be those who break the rules. However if the rule of law is to prevail, then they should be brought to book to maintain the reputation of the Army as well as maintain discipline.The main factor is to admit, identify and deal with this and not live in denial.
