Defence minister Manohar Parrikar has said that soldiers should be asked to kill the enemy instead of being told to lay down their own lives.
What the actual statement was?
Addressing a reception the minister said, ‘It was said that soldier is ready to lay down his life for country. I am against it. Why get killed? Don’t get killed. Kill the enemy. See the record of one year and you will see the result.’
The Defence Minister also said he liked to go around without security as having security might not be safe at times.
