Union Minister of State for Defence Pallam Raju today said the government was committed to encourage privatisation in the defence sector, especially in the strategic electronics space, to bolster the indigenisation of defence technologies and face any external threat. Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 3rd Strategic Electronics Summit of the Defence and Aerospace organised by India Semiconductor Association here, he said the internal security situation needed much more attention as the threats were more serious than perceived. 'More importantly the danger India may face after foreign forces withdraw from Afghanistan, the unresolved border dispute with China and constant needling by Pakistan from across the borders call for a strong defence capability,' he said. He said the current internal security situation was not helping the country and was a big deterrence to its progress, while the country needs full deterrent capability to counter external threats. 'This can be possible if the Strategic Electronic sector develop niche technologies on par with the West. All modern warfare systems depend on electronics system and development of strategic electronics is extremely important,' he said. MORE UNI RS MSP VV ADB1610 NNNN
