Respected and Hon'ble Defence Minister of India Shri Manohar Parikkarji,

We pay huge taxes to govt. to provide us the basic needs and also to keep us simple and ordinary people secure and safe. The govt. in turn employs different types of people to render different kinds of services to the people.

The govt maintains a very large armed force at a huge cost and employs people in armed forces, pay them well, train them at a huge cost to be psychologically and physically fit, and also provides them several facilities, concessions, subsidies, etc. so that they are comfortable, during and also after service, and they can serve and keep the people safe and secure during all times. They are provided with sophisticated arms to handle any eventuality.

But our armed forces are scared of the same simple and ordinary people whom they need to protect and safeguard. And they are surprisingly quoting security threat as the main reason for closing the public roads which are acting as the main and connecting lifelines in Secunderabad Cantonment area, the same roads which were in use by the civilians for over 100 years now and there was not a single event of attack on any military installation in Secunderabad Cantonment, a peace zone.

This raises serious doubts about the abilities and capabilities of our army fellows, both psychologically and physically. And we simple and ordinary citizens feel a lot more insecure now for our army fellows are themselves feeling insecure. That too of simple and ordinary civilians.

So we better trust in god and pray for your own safety than trust our Indian Army for they have no confidence in their own abilities. But we will continue to pay taxes to govt. without expecting any security from them. Let our monies be used for providing comforts and colonial lifestyle to our armed forces personnel.

All pay and comforts and no work makes our armed forces people happy, fatty and docile. Let us not disturb them when they close the public roads to play golf and make lakhs of people suffer. And still quote security as the reason.
