With profound sense of loss, community of Military Families is sad to hear departure of Sh Manhohar Parrikar; Ex Defence Minister of India to heavenly abode.
Manohar Parrikar Ji was a technical professional turned politician and had been CM of Goa and Defence Minister of India. He carried a very honest and clean political image. Down to earth simple man with sensitive heart.
Soldiers remember him as defence minister, who was totally dedicated to the service of armed forces and soldiers. He was one, who personally managed processing of OROP proposal pushing through resisting walls of bureaucracy. His proposal as sent to PMO was for full OROP as asked by soldiers.
He worked overtime for development of indigenous defence capabilities and personally supervised development of key technologies and weapon system.
He had humane approach to problems of soldiers and ex servicemen and was always available to attend to their problems.
In spite of a short tenure, Manohar Parrikar ji will always be remembered as a successful Defence Minister of India.
We Soldiers and families pay our last Salute to this great son and Citizen Soldier of India.
Fauji Reporter requests military families to sign their respect to departed soul by way of putting your comments.
