Is defense minister Manohar Parrikar good?
Today I met with a CEO of a company who’s company provide one of their product to defence field.
She told me a latest incident about Mr. parriker which made me proud that Modi hand-picked him for this role.
Indian army use a special kind of shoes in some of their particular use.
We used to purchase this shoes from Israel at a price of ₹ 25000 per shoe.
This was in general routine till Mr. Parriker came into picture.
After he became the Defense minister, his people did some enquiries and they found that these shoes are exported to Israel from India only.
The shoes were manufactured in Jaipur India.
After this he directed the defense people to approach the company for direct procurement.
The company directly refused the deal citing corruption, delay in payment and further difficulties.
Listening this, he directly approached the company and given his personal contact number and said, “even if your payment get delayed for a single day, contact me directly”.
The deal got finalized at ₹ 2200 per shoes.
From ₹ 25000 to ₹2200 per shoes.
This is the determination of Mr. Parriker, now you guys decide whether he is a good minister or not.
Modi rightly said Manohar Parrikar is one of the jewels in his cabinet. One of the efficient and sharp ministers that every Indian should be proud of.
