Defence experts stress for openness in military matters
To ensure better interface between the public and the armed forces, various defence experts on Saturday emphasised the need to bring far more openness in military matters to mobilise public opinion in the larger interest of national security, reports PTI.
They were also of the opinion that there should be no politicisation of the defence forces, which was gradually creeping into the system.
These views were expressed by the experts during an interactive session on 'Valour, History, Politics and Media' on the second day of Military Literature Festival2018 here, a Punjab government release said.
The discussions were mainly focused on the role of cinema and media in highlighting the heroic deeds of armed forces, the release said.
The penalists included Lt Gen (retd) N S Brar, Lt General (retd) T S Shergill.
