Interview with Navy chief

I interviewed Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sureesh Mehta today on a whole host of topics, including piracy, the INS Tabar incident, the nuclear submarine programme, modernisation, pay commission and Vikramaditya. Will post from the interview tomorrow.

shiv, Did u ask about the Naval LCA. Read in The Hindu that ADA and HAL have ambitious plans of teat flying it thee next year with a new powerful engine based on PV-5

Its immpossible that it would happen ,but what's the navy's point of view.

The fruits of motivated elements allowing the ATS and the media to yap on about "Hindu Terror" and "Terror in uniform". We are at war. Who will save us now? The same soldiers who we wanted to deny a bloody grade pay? The same generals who are lower than bloody DGPs?

Shame on this country. Shame on her, and shame on us. And particulary shame on the fifth columnists in the media. And shame on this government that wanted to make a poll issue out being soft on terror.

Words cannot express my rage and anger and frustration at the weakness of our national psyche.

For shame. We are a nation of filth, and we get what we deserve.

For Shame.

ATS head Hemant Kerkar, and Addl CP Kamte killed in an ambush while making a visit to Cama Hospital.

Rest in peace. How long will we lose our soldiers, policemen, civilians, and our national spirit before we respond?

I am certain that the "Hindu terror" and "Terror in uniform" and "Armed forces pay anomalies" issues have been raised to demoralise the security forces.

Who profits from the crime? Our not so friendly neighbors.

I wonder do we have a mole in the beureucracy who is hell bent on sabotaging the armed forces. UNFORTUNATE THAT GOVT IS YET TO ANNOUNCE THE DECISION ON CORE ISSUES

Hi Shiv

Great job mate!

Perhaps you will find the time to post your interview with the CNS this week?

Will you also do another feature from CNS's Navy Day conference?
