Chandigarh moots underground nuke shelter for 'top brass' - Indian Express
Shouldn't these facilities be available to only essential military personnel? What good would IAS and IPS do after initial strike on a city?
No lowly IAS or IPS will be allowed inside during a real crisis. Only netas and his/her family will be allowed.
As because mentioning real motive may cause anger, it's only for namesake that it mentions IPS and IAS.
Hmm............. Another scam in making.:shocked:
My question would be different.
Is 40 crore enough for making these shelters completely radiation proof, especially if they are underground and are costly to build in any case?
Just saying, radiation shielding is supposed to be pretty costly, just how powerful of a weapon do they plan to build shields from?
Does this mean Pakistan's nuclear weapons may be handed over to rogue elements such as Lashkar-e-Toiba?:shocked:
Will be just another multi billion scam in the end. Though the amount mentioned may be low now, there will be further outlay in years to come.
No, It's just that some boss/politico in some department in Chandigarh's local administration went paranoiac by watching the news webcast from across the border and his/her subordinate walked the extra mile by inviting contenders to please him/her.
Radiation shielding is not costly, concrete alone can provide effective shielding as long as the shelter is not too close to the site of the blast (in which case they'd be fried like a chicken in a tandoor, anyway). 40 cr. in India is adequate with 7 days worth of supplies and storage.
They're counting on radiation levels to die off in in 7 days(which they would, theoretically) but I don't understand how do they plan to tackle nuclear fallout.
