We don’t want bullet trains. We want proper bulletproof jackets first.

A lot of our soldiers don’t have proper bulletproof jackets. Our policemen and even our SWAT teams are fighting terrorists wearing cricket helmets and knee pads. This is gear for sportsmen, not soldiers. They stop cricket balls, not bullets.

I am proud of our soldiers because they fight for India. But I am terrified for them because the country is not providing them with the protection they need.

Our army had asked for lightweight bulletproof armour 10 years back and they still don’t have it. Our policemen and soldiers are dying because they don’t have bulletproof jackets.

The Defence Minister asked for 50,000 emergency jackets to be procured 6 months back. The army still hasn’t got them. If they had, we might not have lost our brave soldiers who were martyred in Mumbai, Gurdaspur, Pathankot and many more before.

Why are we talking about bullet trains and giant statues when our army and police are not protected while fighting terrorist attacks?

This is an urgent request to the Home Minister and Defence Minister. Please provide adequate bulletproof armour for our army and policemen. Let us try and give our soldiers the best protection possible.

Sign and share my petition to keep our soldiers safe.
