The government has not bought new guns for the Regiment of Artillery to replace the 26-year old howitzer, Bofors. It may be mentioned that the late lamented husband of Sonia Gandhi had lost the elections after a bribery scandal involving Rajiv Gandhi vis-a vis purchase of Bofors howitzers from Sweden came to light.
By the way, the People Liberation Army of China has a new Arm for Artillery equipped with latest guns and missiles. One of their missiles, Dung Feng-10 is capable of destroying any aircraft carrier of Americans in the Pacific Ocean. Reportedly, the US Admirals are losing their sleep over this matter.
The Indian Air Force, IAF has not been given an Advanced Trainer Aircraft. The Navy's much hyped aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant will not be ready to be handed over to the Navy for another seven years.
Cosmetic treatment of the maladies will take the present government to nowhere. The country has not been prepared to take on China or Pakistan. Now even Myanmar is making intrusions on the Indian soil.
The Congress government at the Centre has launched a witch hunt against retired Army Chief General VK Singh, which is destroying the morale of the officers and soldiers alike.
The Manmohan Singh led government is playing with fire by ignoring the welfare of the Hindus who form 82 to 85 percent of the population of India. The appeasement of the minorities is weakening the national secular fabric and the UPA government knows not what it is doing.
May god save our Bharat from the corruption ridden cabinet of the UPA government. There are new scandal surfacing everyday i.e. 2G, 3G, Railgate, Coalgate etc. Not a word is being spoken by the Congress Chairperson Sonia Gandhi over the issue of rampant corruption and the indulgence of UPA ministers in it.
The less said the better. Let us not mention the shady land deals of Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi as mentioning personal conduct is not good politics.
It is a do or die campaign for the political parties. The nationalist forces must see to it that the corruption laden UPA government is kept away from power as it is eating into the vitals of our nation.
