Peace impossible without power: Modi
Kargil: Narendra Modi on Monday said that India has never viewed war as the first option but that peace cannot be achieved without strength.
“We have never considered war to be the best choice…We tried to postpone the conflict in Lanka and Kurukshetra until the very end. We oppose conflict, but peace is impossible without strength,” Modi told armed forces in Kargil.
He that India’s dependence on foreign weapons and systems should be kept to a minimum.
“I commend all the three armed forces who have decided that over 400 types of defence equipment will not be imported but rather be built in India. When our jawans fight with made-in-India weapons, they will not only feel proud but also have an element of surprise to defeat the enemy,” he further said.
Modi went on to say that the way of warfare is changing in the age of technology. He added that armed forces are ready, with new training, new reforms, and new technology.
