'Army is not facing shortages'
Rajkot: A former Army officer has said that
the Indian Army has enough ammunition and weapons stock.
"Our nation is completely safe and our army is able to
meet any emergency," Lt Gen (retd) Jasbirsinh Dhillon said
He addressed students of Atmiya College here at a seminar
on 'Management Lessons from Defence'. The seminar had been
organised jointly by Atmiya College and Kutch Saurashtra
Productivity Council (KSPC).
Army chief VK Singh had recently written a letter to
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, expressing concern about
shortage of weapons and ammunition.
But Dhillon said that "I had been the Director General of
a weapons manufacturing factory and therefore I can say that
the Indian defence has the adequate stock of quality weapons
and there is no shortage of any critical weapons".
"Our soldiers' morale is high, and we have nothing to
worry about security of our country. Our defence forces have
enough stock of ammunition and have enough strength to win any
type of war."
