What a sorry state of affairs our good old Saint Anthony has led us into, maybe under the guidance of the Queen Bee as she did with Manmohan to hush up on the 'Fishtail' issue, as reported in the Sunday Guardian. It is time to do away with the Ordnance factories and give it to the private sector or have a PPP. Ordnance factories are a drain on the exchequer, babudom ridden with no accountability and infamous for slippages or poor quality products. If much of the ammunition has to be imported, then India should invite those companies to set up shop in India so that this mess does not occur. the FDI in defence is a correct step in this direction.
