The re-appointment of Mr. Ajit Doval as the National Security Advisor with cabinet rank is a good news for the national security as the country is need of continuation of the strategy that he initiated during the first term of the Modi government.

It establishes the faith that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has in Doval’s capabilities and capacity to undertake the huge task of the national security especially when there are so many threats gathering around the nation as also from within.

Doval is a strategic thinker and doer and how he changed the dynamics of punishing the acts of terrorism emanating from across the border or from within has left many imprints on the national security. There is a renewed confidence in this 1968 batch officer who has the first hand information on the most challenging areas of the national security with regard to Kashmir, North-East and also about the Maoist violence.

With regard to Kashmir, his strategy of relentlessly taking on militants, their harbourers and symapthisers has already started showing gainful results. The militants are losing the steam and the recruitment space is shrinking , while the security forces have re-established their supremacy . It has become unquestionable and unchallenged, something that had not happened for years now.

Doval can change the narrative on the national security to the best interests of the nation.
