Defence Minister says that army has to use gun to fight insurgencyMr. Manohan Parrikar, the Defence Minister, has made a very strong statement. He has said that if the civil administration decides to use the army for protection and killing an insurgency network, the army should be allowed to control it by "firing straight". He has further stated: "I don't want to train the army to use lathis,"
I fully support Hon'ble Home Minister. The army must fight insurgency with guns and not with lathis. The extremely violent insurgents must be dealt with violently. Peace is not meant for them.
