'It is a kind of totally asymmetric which our enemies are trying to impose on us which creates the problem' says Manohar Parrikar.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said the security scenario in the country is changing as even a handful number of people can pose a threat in case of a terrorist attack.

“…Last 10 to 20 years the security scenario (in the country) is changing. One or two or three people can disturb the peace. How many people came in Pathankot (to attack). How many people came in Gurudaspur. How many people came whenever there is a fight between terrorists and security forces… probably three, four, five or six. So it is not the number,” Parrikar said.

“It is a kind of totally asymmetric which our enemies are trying to impose on us which creates the problem,” he said.
The minister today inaugurated cantonment general hospital in Secunderabad constructed with an expenditure of Rs 5.17 crore.

He was responding to a request made by Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya and Malkajgiri MP Malla Reddy on the occasion on allowing civilians to pass through some of the areas under army control in cantonment area in Secunderabad.

Parrikar, however, said he would personally visit those areas where public was not allowed to pass through and discuss with officials.

Dattatreya and Telangana IT Minister K T Rama Rao were among those who spoke in the meeting.
