    Frankly, I don’t like these unproductive, in my opinion, absolutely unnecessary expenses. What on earth we are e going to do with submarines and other machines required in a war? We do not think that there is a possibility of a threat of an enemy attack from either of our two neighbors, Burma and India, and there is nothing that cannot save us from a suitable foreign policy. We had our motto – “Friendship to all and Enmity to none.” If we stick to that, there is no possibility of an attack, unless of course we do not intentionally get involved in a war ourselves.
    In this connection I want to remind the Government that excluding the sea shore covered by the mangrove forests of Sundarban, we have available beach area from Noakhali to Teknaf to do, or to construct anything we want to, unless we want to sacrifice Sunderban in the process.
