At a time when world’s major weapon makers are wooing India thinking it to be one of the most lucrative markets worldwide, the Indian Army Chief has recommended that nation needs to develop its own indigenous technologies to be able to fight and win wars.
India must fight the next war with home-made solutions, Army chief General Bipin Rawat said on Wednesday while strongly pitching for developing the domestic defence industry.
“We must win the next war with home-made solutions,” he said at a conference on defence modernisation at FICCI.
The Army chief also underlined the need for developing an indigenous intelligence and surveillance system to keep a hawk eye vigil on the borders with China and Pakistan as well as to ensure foolproof security at military installations in the hinterland.
In this context, General Rawat also spoke about the Pathankot and Uri terror attacks, noting that security at military installations was becoming a matter of concern.
