Coastal security to be strengthened further: Raju
Rajahmundry: Union Minister of State
for defence Pallam Raju on Saturday said the defence ministry was
chalking out plans to strengthen the security along the
country`s coastline in the next two years.
Steps were being taken in the coastal areas to avoid a
repeat of 2008 Mumbai terror attack-like incidents, he said.
Raju was speaking after attending the commissioning of an
Indian Coast Guard ship, ICGS C-151, at Kakinada port.
The ship would boost the maritime security cover and
surveillance in the Krishna-Godavari basin, and also
facilitate a quick response to emergency situations, he said.
The ship would augment the security cover provided by
ICGS Gangadevi and interceptor boat C-141, which are based at
Kakinada at present.
S P Sharma, Commander, Coast Guard - East region, said
ICGS C-151 was the third ship to be commissioned at Kakinada
port in the last three years.
