3 Years of Modi Sarkar - A Review
Defense and security related challenges
The situation in Valley continues to highly volatile and disturbing. The COAS has raised serious concern that army is not getting enough funds to match there defense requirement no positive efforts have been made to meet even the Navy and Air Force requirements. Rather if we look at it seriously the scraping of MMRCA the RAFFEL deal and compromising on 36 Air craft deal was a highly retrograde step. The MMRCA deal came to a final stage after nearly 7 years of very methodical process of selection. It would be prudent to mention that the original deal of RAFFEL was 75% cheaper then the deal struck by the P.M. for 36 air craft.
Not only that even the defense as a hole has been treated very lackadaisically. Since the time the Govt. came into being we have had three defense ministers. Initially Arun Jaitly with additional charge and then Manohar Parikar was brought as a very competent and honest man but found incompetent and shunted out to Goa again to head the State Govt. Once again we have Arun Jaitly as a part time defense minister. This is how we tackle the National Defense.
