Planning : Ten Reasons Why Two-Front War Strategy will not Enhance India’s Military Strength- Praveen Sawhney

This video lecture by Praveen Sawhney  highlights that Gen Bipin Rawat planning as CDS is very impulsive and inadequate . In fact its obsolete right in the beginning . This daily  meeting with journalists by Gen Rawat is fruitless to say the least . Chinese thought for three years before coming out with American oriented defence planning . Modern warfare is not battle field oriented . USA bombarded Iraq for three months before hundred hours land war . Chinese have two lakh troops in Tibet after Doklam . Indian army’s Dual use troops between East and West are not so useful in the current scenerio. Uri and Balakot had only political significance . They were not real challenging military operations say like Kargil or Bangladesh war . Our capabilities in  Cyber , AI , Space war etc needs to be upgraded . Gen Rawat is doing only the  army oriented talking which is his area of expertise . Image building exercise being undertaken is counterproductive . By 2035 CPEC led Pakistan Chinese forces would have new challenges .

He argues for reduction in manpower but does not however examine why not reduce armed police and man ITBP , BSF , Assam Rifles by retired army officers and soldiers.

We need to learn from China and USA .

Sawhney  is arguing that India should make peace with Pakistan .
