India needs to be self-reliant in defence, Manohar Parrikar says

By NewsGram Staff Writer

New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday sounded out the importance of self-dependence and need for indigenous efforts with regards to ammunition supply in attempt at consolidating India’s combativeness at the Engineers Conclave organized by the National Academy of Engineering and Bhaba Atomic Research Centre.

Dependence on other countries should be the last resort.

Further, the minister talked of the Swacch Bharat campaign and Ganga cleaning mission and how it should have been started much before the BJP led-NDA government came into power considering the medical importance of the venerated river.

“Aspect of a clean and green India can generate power by itself. Our culture tells us that earth has enough to give you for your needs,” he said.
