Army’s Kibithu Base In Arunachal Named After First CDS Late Gen Bipin Rawat
- To honour the country’s first Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) late General Bipin Rawat, the Kibithu military garrison in Arunachal was named after him.
- The event to rename the military station was attended by state Governor Brig BD Mishra (Retd) and Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu, senior military and civilian dignitaries along with daughters of the late CDS.
- Gen Rawat died in a chopper crash last year in December along with his wife Madhulika Rawat and 12 other military personnel.
- Khandu pledged ₹10 crores for a facelift of the garrison, and to transform it into “one of the best forward army bases in the country”.
- As a colonel, Rawat commanded his battalion – 5/11 Gorkha Rifles – at Kibithu in 1999-2000. He was known to fondly recall his tenure as the commanding officer in Kibithu, his other postings in the northeast, and believed that the region and its people held tremendous potential – Mishra and Khandu spoke at length about the special place the northeast held in the general’s heart.
- In his address, the governor even recalled how the late CDS stepped in to help the state two years ago when it was struggling to repay dues amounting to over ₹320 crores to the Indian Air Force for the use of its assets.
- Hundreds of locals from Kibithu and Walong turned up the ceremony and broke into spontaneous applause when the dignitaries recalled Rawat’s contribution to the northeast.
- The General Rawat army base is not too far from the stunning Namti plains that the Chinese called ‘Tiger’s Mouth’ because of the heavy losses they suffered there 60 years ago in the Battle of Walong – considered to be one of the few glorious chapters for India in the 1962 war.
- The government is yet to appoint his successor. His demise was seen as a setback to the ongoing military reforms.
- Rawat was posthumously awarded Padma Vibhushan, India’s second-highest civilian honour, in March 2022.
