"We also have intelligence inputs that there might be more terrorist attacks planned by various groups in the next few days; we have made all arrangement to counter it," Parrikar said.

He also said that care is being be taken to ensure that there is no violence during the assembly polls in Kashmir.

However Parrikar also said that the government is planning to legalise representatives of various foreign arms companies in the country, for speedy purchase of military hardware.

The Minister said middlemen can be permitted to charge expenses from parent companies for representing them in the country.

Parrikar, who assumed charge of Defence Ministry a month ago, said having representatives with a very clear method of payment and fees was a better solution to the defence forces than delaying the procurement procedures.
