    Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday alleged that some former Prime Ministers had compromised the country’s “deep assets” on national security but refrained from naming them.

    Parrikar said he did not give details about Coast Guard operation involving a boat coming from Pakistan as the “source (of information) might be compromised”, a PTI report stated.

    “After all, you have to build deep assets. Deep assets are created over 20-30 years. Sadly, there were some prime ministers who compromised deep assets.

    “I am not going to disclose names. Many people know,” Parrikar said after releasing a special issue of the Hindi weekly Vivek, on national security, in Mumbai.

    Taunting the Congress for demanding evidence on the recent Coast Guard operation against a Pakistani vessel carrying suspected terrorists, he said, “There was demand for giving proof (that it was a Pak terror vessel). Tomorrow, during such operation we will take along a (media) cameraman and also the Congress spokesperson.

    “However, now a days nothing can be said with certainty as Congress spokespersons say good things about Modi government,” Parrikar said taking a swipe at Janardhan Dwivedi.

    Parrikar said there were differing perceptions between India and China on the Line of Actual Control.

    “We have not taken the issue of border security seriously. Tomorrow if war were to take place and at the same time if there were riots in some parts of the country, it would be difficult (situation),” Parrikar said.

    Highlighting the need for media to exercise restraint on sensitive issues like terror attacks, Parrikar compared the TV coverage of recent Paris terror attacks and the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

    “In Paris, not a single body was shown and not a drop of blood was seen on TV. Contrast this to our live coverage. I am not criticising but we should have this sense,” he said

    Similarly the real reason for what happened after Godhra incident in 2002 was the disturbing photos shown (by media),” Parrikar said.

    “Tomorrow somebody may file a PIL complaining that the decibel level of firing on the border exceeds 140 decibels after 10 pm norms and that it disturbs their sleep,” Parrikar said.

    “The only exception is loudspeakers atop certain holy places where nobody objects even if the loudspeakers blare till 1 am,” he said.

    Parrikar said he plans to send Defence Ministry officials to border for 15 days to sensitize them on hardships faced by armed forces. “Then maybe several files will be cleared fast,” the Defence Minister said.

    Good to see he is following the NDA strategy of teaching the babus real lessons in the challenges our soldiers face like last time they were sent to Siachen when they questioned need for ski vehicles.

    Also he is taking into account the massive threat posed by rioting muslims and the need for army to be deployed whenever they riot. Will be tough situation in wartime

    Well why not. If it were any other citizen, someone of no distinguishing social or economic standing, his life would effectively be forefiet for compromising the security of some national asset, and for good reason.

    This is a recurring theme in India and elsewhere; most people will not contest it to be the case.

    People talk about social mobility, the importance of social mobility in uplifting a market economy.

    But there is something equally important for a well-regulated society to enforce; frequently we overlook downward social mobility.
    For thousands of years, wealth and power has concentrated itself in the world, and India has been no exception.
    All citizens without exception, should stand to loose their gains or inheritance of wealth or power by correspondingly severe, intentional wrongdoing or negligence.

    Of course, people will feel insecure. I am no different; if I stand to loose accumulated wealth or social status that afforded my family any particular privilege, it will be difficult for me to accept this as a reasonable condition, and perhaps I will stay quiet. Regardless, that's not an honest position. If we are to be a people united by concern for overall good and appreciative of one another's interest in life, then it follows that living conditions good enough for one citizen to endure should be considered good enough for all others. The principle being that we're all in this together.

    It is true, security of one's accumulated wealth and power is an incentive for performance. But it can also be taken to an extreme and today unsurprisingly there is no limit on wealth and power concentrating itself in society; wealth and power do not tend toward limiting themselves.

    I do not disagree with a market economy and democratic government where achievement and responsibility are respectively rewarded with wealth and power. But there are other considerations as well. It is common to bring up the issue of communalism in India, building national unity, and how economic demographic affect outcomes in society. Well, here is one way to build equality, unity, and general appreciation for one's fellow citizen: it must be the case that every citizen and family is equally liable to live as the highest and lowest social and economic rungs in society within a lifetime and between generations, without exception.

    I am sad that I don't doubt this news to be true, and left wondering when we will have some reasonable legal framework, that will be enforced, to hold our elected officials and industrialists accountable.

    There is no doubt that for some reasons UPA-1 & 2 were running an agenda of weakening India by deliberately destroying every institution and ensuring that we never have an ability to take our rightful place in the world. It was as if, they were working on the payrolls of our enemies.

    UPA played with our research in Thorium nuke plants and also forced closure of TSD set up after 26/11 due to their spat with Gen. V K Singh.

    The worrying factor here is the word "some" which means somebody/people apart from IK Gujral also did some sabotage.

    If it was MMS then he should be tried and punished.

    The other ones, is Morarji Desai in 1977.
    He reported Pakistan that we have some news, secrets
    About your nuke plans at Kahuta our intelligence RAW says.
    Waiting for future orders, were set by former PM Indira Gandhi.
    We are good, peace lover.
    We want peace in Pakistan,
    plz send back our great spies in your country".

    Pakistan killed them almost. Later Pakistan said we found nobody.
    He (then PM) set down all operations and projects to be done by RAW, IB.

    No, MMS wasn't.
    I.K. Gujral and Morarji Desai were the main and the greatest PM ever, India had.
    Who abolished Indian intelligence when it were waiting for the strict and decisive orders for some strict actions to be carried out.
    And these caused the killing of Indian Intelligence in foreign.
