Kargil was our intelligence failure

india Updated: Sep 26, 2006 17:05 IST

While I do not agree with President Musharraf that Kargil was a major success of Pakistan, I’m of the view that it showed the abysmal failure of the Indian intelligence agencies.

These agencies have still not learnt the lesson and go on showing their colossal failure in providing timely intelligence to the government. Many terrorist activities in India could have been checked had there not been a failure on the part of these agencies. Also the coordination between military, intelligence agencies, defence and home ministries and the state governments also leave much to be desired.

Many lives of young and brilliant military officers had to be sacrificed because of this lack of the functioning of the government both at Centre and state level as well as the various intelligence agencies.
