China cuts 3 lakh troops, shrinks PLA to 2 million
BEIJING: China today said it has slashed three lakh troops, reducing the size of its 2.3-million People's Liberation Army (PLA) to just two-million-strong force, a move aimed at making the world's largest army a mightier force capable of winning modern wars.
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang made the announcement in his annual work report to the National People's Congress (NPC).
Li said the military had completed its goal of slashing three lakh troops, reducing the size of the 2.3 million PLA to just two-million-strong force.
The PLA Daily, official newspaper of the Chinese military, said non-battle personnel were downsized.

India also plans a military of only 9 lakh soldiers, they r now focusing on improving combat effectiveness of everyone, we now won't have any non combat soldiers in big numbers, even engineers, signal corps and inventory management soldiers are being reduced and trained to be part of combat effectively. this will help in modernization of armed force and also decreases burden of salaries and pension.

Its high time we should introspect ourselves. What kind of politics should we do. Feel like chinese news are to cover up or diversion of major news of bankruptcy. What about NIrav Modi, We would have buy many a weapons from that money.

By reducing the size of army, China can save hundreds of millions US$ in peace time. Chinese always way smarter than Hindu dogs. Hindu dogs even don''t have money to build toilets. Their girls have to take the risks of being raped to pee and poo outside the house in the open like monkeys. he...he...he......

We sud learn from China. Instead troops being used for law nd order, combat capabilities needs to be improved by jointness nd duplication
