val were to give In­dia a ro­bust and de­ter­rent se­cu­rity and in­tel­li­gence struc­ture that would pre­vent ter­ror­ist at­tacks on the na­tion. Dur­ing the one year that Do­val was the IB chief, In­dia did not suf­fer any ter­ror at­tacks. In­ter­nal se­cu­rity and strat­egy ex­pert Ajai Sahni said he did not want to com­ment on Do­val as an in­di­vid­ual but said that the BJP govern­ment had def­i­nitely de­fined its se­cu­rity pol­icy in greater de­tail com­pared with the pre­vi­ous UPA govern­ment. “The BJP man­i­festo talks in de­tail about the in­ter­nal se­cu­rity re­quire­ments. It fo­cuses on ca­pac­ity build­ing rather than flashy ideas. If it can deliver on those, it will be a tremen­dous im­prove­ment,” Sahni said. Ac­cord­ing to him, it was widely be­lieved that Do­val was in­volved in giv­ing in­puts on in­ter­nal se­cu­rity for the BJP man­i­festo.
