'High sounding jargon': Chidambaram on import embargo

Aug 09, 2020 12:42 IST

Senior Congress leader and former union minister P Chidambaram on Sunday dismissed defence ministry's import embargo announcement as a mere high sounding jargon. Reacting to Rajnath Singh's announcement, Chidambaram tweeted that while the defence minister promised a bang, he just delivered a whimper. "What it means is we will try to make the same equipment that we import today in 2 to 4 years and stop imports thereafter," Chidambaram tweeted. He added that since defence ministry is the only importer of defence equipment if the defence ministry itself, all this announcement deserved was an office order from the ministry to its secretaries.
