Navy for no compromise on security

KOCHI, NOV. 29. The Indian Navy will not compromise on its aviation security even while striving for the economic growth and stability of the land.

Vice-Admiral S. C. S. Bangara, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Southern Naval Command, said here today that the Navy would not pose a hindrance to development. He was referring to the issue of setting up higher cranes at the Rajiv Gandhi Container Terminal of the Cochin Port Trust.
