Hindu state needs a coastal police force that hugs the coast. – Simranjit Singh Mann
The Tribune Dated 15th November, 2022
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that it is all very well that the Hindu Indian state has a blue water Navy and a Coast Guard. But what is lacking is that the Hindu state does not have a Naval Police which should hug the shallow Sea on the Coast. The Jurisdiction of the Naval Police should be confined to the areas of the coastal police stations.
This coastal naval police should have experienced seamen from the retiring Naval and Merchant Naval forces. They should have armour plated swift motor boats with mounted machine guns, radars to detect under water weaponry and other weapons to deter unlawful landings on the beaches.
Then only can we ascertain that the coasts of the Hindu Indian state are safe and secure from intrusions and contraband.
I think I spoke in Parliament as a Member from 1999 to 2004 on this subject but matters of security are never on the top list of the Hindu Indian state that came into being only in 1947. The aggression of Communist China in 2020 has still not been undone and currently the Army Chief is on a visit to France and the Premier in Bali, a great holiday resort.
