They are part of the national defence policy of this country. So, where there is serious war, our corps members are educated, they are knowledgeable and they can be trained.

“You can imagine within the short three weeks in the orientation camps, the corps members are moulded. They are like soldiers.

They are also part of the national defence policy”, he added.
