A War Thirsty Minister?
Narendra Modiâ€™s luck is phenomenal, from a tea vendor to prime minister of the biggest democracy. But it seems his luck ran out with regard to ministers. If a news item posted on June 15 on NDTV website edited by Deepshikha Ghosh, quoting Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar saying that “…. the status of Military in the eyes of Indian citizens has gone down because there has been no war in the last 40-50 years etc etc……..” The news item also quoted that such utterance was made by him at Jaipur. If the statement purported to have been made by the minister is correct do we have a war-thirsty or one who loves his voiceâ€”for he seems to speak all the time. If his speaking can secure our country hail our Minister, but ifâ€¦god save our country.
