Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar admits there is Scope for Security Improvement in India

The surgical strike by India was carried out in retaliation to the Uri attack on September 18, this year, which left 19 Indian soldiers dead

New Delhi, Dec 2, 2016: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday accepted that there is a chance for improvement in the security as some “sort of lethargy” has set in over a period of time and warned that those behind any “lapse” will get due punishment.

In the wake of Nagrota terror attack, the Minister also mentioned that the recent surgical strike has led to a sense of “uncertainty” in the Pakistani security establishment but it was also a good confidence building measure for India, mentioned PTI.

While answering to the questions regarding security arrangements at army camps, Parrikar said, “I think we can definitely improve upon it. Probably, over a period, some sort of lethargy has set in. Relaxation, it is obvious… it is taking some time.”

In the wake of militants storming the complex of 166 artillery unit of Army at Nagrota on Tuesday, Parrikar was asked whether there was something that could have been done or can be done in the security arrangements.

In the terrorist attack, seven security personnel, including two officers were killed in the incident, which witnessed a fierce gunbattle as well as a hostage-like situation at the army camp, considered to be a peace posting in the Army parlance, mentioned PTI.

Parrikar, who was speaking at HT Leadership Summit, said it is “very painful” to see soldiers die but they needed to save children and families.

“I think we need to think out of the box. I am very sure that Army is aware of it and working on it,” he said.

When asked about his earlier stress on fixing responsibility, Parrikar said even if he does a mistake, he will “have to pay for it”.

“Even if there are lapses, they need to be tackled properly. You cannot afford lapses,” the Minister said.

According to PTI report, Parrikar spoke about the importance and need to use smart technologies for perimeter protection of sensitive bases but also mentioned that building proper infrastructure is possible but it cannot be created overnight.

To get things done swiftly, he indicated that lengthy army procedures were coming in the way.

When asked whether India can carry out more surgical strikes, Parrikar said the “principle of uncertainty” should be allowed to operate. “It will be beneficial to all of us.”

He said that surgical strikes have introduced a degree of uncertainty. “Obviously, uncertainty itself creates decision-making bottlenecks. You will never know them.”

The surgical strike by India was carried out in retaliation to the Uri attack on September 18, this year, which left 19 Indian soldiers dead.
