Four-day bi-annual IAF conference commences in the capital
India is a liberal, democrat, and peaceful country. The leadership in the country from the very beginning has been emphasising on the all corner development. It always followed the policy of ‘being strong and well built’ not for terrorising and overpowering its neighbouring countries but to defend itself in case of alien’s attack and to fight against terrorists’ aggression crop up within the country or infiltration through its neighbouring countries.
It is funds/wealth and amount of resources disbursing upon the defence purposes, which sets direction for the countries defence programme. With these realities keeping in mind the Defence Minister A K Antony said the shortage of funds would not allow hampering the growth of modernisation process. The only need for us is to be careful for the allocated funds must be utilised optimally and judiciously.
The Defence Minister also called upon the scientists to develop ways for attaining the level of modernisation as per the developed countries while inaugurating the bi-annual Air Force Commanders Conference in the capital on Monday.
We cannot be independent in defence sphere unless or until our scientist develop ways to modernise technologies. The purchase of prepared defence material would not always help to be technologically self-sufficient and so the twin process of modernisation and indigenisation demand a pace in the process.
So the Minister calls the scientist fraternity to keep on research and experimenting and pledged lack of funds would not be allowed limiting their ways. He insisted on achieving the twin aim of modernisation but not at the cost of economy of the country. The expenses on defence must be utilised carefully and avoid “waste and duplication.”
Antony simultaneously advised the top brass of Indian Air Force to differentiate modernisation plans into short-term and long-term objectives considering the India’s strategic requirements so as ‘to plug gaps in our defence preparedness.’
Highlighting the alteration in security dimensions across the world, Antony said, “With latest technological advancements fuelling military capabilities, the type and level of future conflicts is rapidly changing from overt to covert warfare. In the present strategic environment, the term security has therefore, assumed a far greater criticality in the realm of trade and energy, than ever before”.
The purpose is not only to enhance Indian Air Force’s strategic reach, but also to enhance its capabilities in terms of space-based assets, air defence, surveillance, modern aircraft, and advanced weapon system. This ways will assist IAF to evolve into a dominant aerospace power and would help in protecting integrity and sovereignty of India.
The top brass of Indian Air Force comprising the Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal FH Major, Air Officers Commanding in Chiefs of IAF Commands and Principal Staff Officers of Air Headquarters for discussing operational challenges before the Air Force are participating in this four-day conference.
