National Security Advisor Ajit Doval makes a convincing argument that India despite having the scientific and industrial capability has lagged behind in defence manufacturing, whereas countries like China which lacked many of the advantages that India did has been able to become a self sustainable nation in defence equipments and even exports arms and ammunition.
Successive Congress government with vested interests, only played vote bank politics to win election and never planned for the long term capabilities of the country, argues Doval.
Don’t believe us?
Let’s hear out what Ajit Doval has to say on the subject!
Now that the Congress Party has had the opportunity to rule this country for the longest span of time, it is but a hypothesis that the country could have progressed a lot more, had the prime ministers of yesteryear’s focused more on nation-building than on populist measures to keep their vote bank intact, albeit a convincing one.
What do you think?
