    According to me Mr Antony is doing his best to revamp our forces and in quiete a decent and clean manner.

    If I were to base it on how he did as Kerala CM then he is a jackass. His advisors may be doing a good job but I am not sure they are either.

    None.

    However:

    As a person who understood defence, it is Jagjivan Ram.

    As a handon man who was not afraid to rough it out to include his most important religious festival, Christmas, it is George Fernandez.

    As a honest person, it is Anthony.

    I am not including Jaswant Singh because he had the advantage of being an Army man!

    For the life of me, I cannot find one Defence Minister that has all the qualities required of a Defence Minister.

    Please add a 'None of the Above' button if you so feel inclined.

    A defence minister should have thought process of a mimitary commander himself.

    He should b able to forsee the future of our forces.

    Should b able to deal with the parliament and have political will to get done what he thinks right.

    Should b able to gear up forces morale and our defence industry.

    Should step up monitoring of our defence procurements.

    @Ray... Ur right v dont have such a person in sight.... Only Yusuf qualifies ;)

    Jaswant singh is ideal candidate for PM. he was main trouble shooter for ABV. he held post of external affairs minister and finance minister. he is a learned and pragmatic person. only factor against him is that he doesnt have mass base and is not close to RSS.

    In any voting involving selecting a politician who did a good job, it may not be a good idea to include an option like 'None of the above'. Folks, more often than not, are bound to go for that option! :)

    None of our defense minister had knowledge of ABC of defense.

    i think time has come that in imp portfolio like defense, a person with atleast basic knowledge of defense should be made defense minister...
