PM condoles demise of K. SubrahmanyamFebruary 2nd, 2011 - 9:50 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 2 (ANI): The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, has condoled the death of prominent security expert K. Subrahmanyam.
Dr. Singh in his condolence message said: “It was with great sadness that I learnt of the passing away of your father K. Subrahmanyam, who was one of the country’s leading security experts and strategists. Beginning with his work in the Ministry of Defence in the early sixties, Subrahmanyam’s distinguished career in public service spanned many decades as a civil servant who maintained the highest traditions of the bureaucracy through his honesty, dedication and exceptional abilities.”
“He made important and lasting contributions to the evolution of India’s defence, security and foreign policies. His work outside the Government is perhaps even more impressive and he spearheaded and developed the field of defence studies in the country. His long stints as head of the Institute of Defence Studies and Analysis established it as one of the premier think tanks in the field,” he added.
The Prime Minister further said: “Subrahmanyam wrote seminal works on an array of subjects covering our nuclear posture, India-Pakistan relations, intelligence matters, disarmament and issues of regional and global strategic importance. His work as head of the Kargil Review Committee was widely recognized both inside the government and outside it.”
“In the passing away of Subrahmanyam, the country has lost an outstanding public servant, visionary and thinker who will be missed by the generations of bureaucrats, academics and writers who were inspired and influenced by his thoughts. Please accept my deepest condolences on the sad demise of your father. May God give you the strength to bear this irreparable loss,” he added.
One of India’s well known analysts on strategic affairs, K. Subrahmanyam died at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Tuesday night. He was 82.
Subrahmanyam, one of the most respected voices in India on global security affairs, was suffering from lung and cardiac problems. He was also suffering from cancer.
At the time of his death, he was the Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Task Force on Global Strategic Developments. (ANI)
