Defence Minister AK Antony’S Condolence Message on The Passing Away of KC Pant

New Delhi: November 15,2012

The Defence Minister Shri AK Antony has expressed profound grief at the sad passing away of Shri KC Pant, who was the Defence Minister from 1987 to 1989.

In a condolence message Shri Antony said :

“The contribution of Shri Pant will be fondly remembered by the countrymen. Shri Pant steered the Ministry at one of the most critical junctures of history as the Indian Peace Keeping Forces were deployed in Sri Lanka as a stepping stone to the tortuous journey for peace in the island nation. The Indian troops were also deployed at short notice in Maldives to abort a coup attempt, in a clear manifestation of our commitment to the promotion of peace and stability in South Asian Region.

Shri Pant bolstered the Indian Armed Forces in a big way with the acquisition of the country’s flagship aircraft carrier INS Viraat and Mig-29 aircraft among many other acquisitions during his tenure as the Defence Minister. He was also instrumental in the setting up of the first Coast Guard Air Station at Daman. May his soul rest in peace.”
