Expensive weapons do not guarantee victory
He said that it is not necessary that only very expensive weapon systems can make us win. How the weapon system is deployed gives us an edge in the war. The Defense Minister said that there is no doubt that technology is important but without proper deployment, equipment with technology will be mere paraphernalia. Merely collecting a weapon with a new technology may be a cause of envy for others, but it does not necessarily guarantee victory to someone.
Defense Minister emphasized on this strategy
Defense Minister emphasized on joint thinking, joint training and joint planning. He said that for a long time we have been dependent on imports to protect our borders. From MiG fighter jets to Sukhoi and the recent Rafale fighter jets. We imported very advanced equipment and platforms from all over the world for our security but the experience of the past has told us that India cannot depend on imports for long for its security. The recent conflict also told us that not just defense supplies, but commercial contracts are always prone to stress when it comes to national interest. Rajnath Singh said that in such a situation, self-reliance is necessary not only to increase domestic capacity but also to maintain our independence.
