Addressing BJP’s Vijay Sankalp Meet in Panaji, Manohar Parrikar said that he has given clear instructions to fire before someone else does. “My clear directions are if someone comes with machine gun to fire, you finish him off before he does,” Manohar Parrikar said. “Therefore we were able to give befitting response to our enemy,” he added. Parrikar said that the main aim of NDA government is to make borders of our country safe. “After we came to power, our attention was on making our borders safe.”

With less than six-months for the state assembly election, Bharatiya Janatha Party (BJP) formally began its poll campaign from the Vijay Sankalp Rally which was flagged off by Union Defence Minister and senior Party leader Manohar Parrikar.

Manohar Parrikar last week had also raised questions on India’s ‘no first use’ nuclear policy. He asked why India cannot say “we are a responsible nuclear power and I will not use it irresponsibly” instead of affirming a “no first use policy”, adding that the remarks were personal in nature.

“Why should I bind myself? I should say I am a responsible nuclear power and I will not use it irresponsibly. This is my(personal) thinking,” Parrikar had said.

India had declared a ‘no first use’ nuclear policy in 1998 after a nuclear weapon test.

      This is the language that Defence Minister of a strong country like India should speak.The nervousness and fear start visible on the faces of enemy and their few sympathisers whose comments reflect their pale condition.Their turn is though late but sure to come when each every anti national will be exposed and dealt with properly even if they have fake ideny.

                Hey Parikar you have absolutely no idea about the army at all. Shame you are the defence Minister to have given the idea to the Army that it already knows too well. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Do you think the army men are dumb wits that you have tell them what to do. They are not going to invite the AK 47 toting guy shooting at the army for dinner or to share hot piping Biryani with him

                  He only knows how to create the hype and momentum as a Bharat. Mataa is everything because of his and Many of his colleagues in his government has made India fragile society where no one trust anyone.
