◆PM Modi may use military option if terror attack traced to Pakistan: Ex-US Ambassador
【Washington】Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to use the military option if the next terrorist attack in India is traced back to Pakistan, a former top US diplomat has warned while hoping that the Pakistanis would understand that their past behaviour is unlikely to be tolerated now.
"Every Indian Prime Minister since the attack on the Parliament in Delhi now heading on 15 years ago has looked seriously at a military response when these incidents occur and has stepped back. But I believe that sentiment inside India has changed substantially and I think this Prime Minister is unlikely to step back," former US Ambassador to India Robert Blackwill said.
○Govt to strength ordinance board for indigenisation
【Hyderabad】The defence ministry will soon strengthen the ordinance board to start indigenisation of defence equipment and armaments, while it also wants to create larger scope for the private sector for defence equipment manufacturing.
Defence minister Manohar Parrikar, while addressing a conference organised by the Forum for Integrated National Security (FINS), said armament indigenisation is an initiative in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ policy. “We will have to indigenise armaments on a priority basis for sake of the country’s security and will have to give priority to the defence sector,” he added.
