Risky to permit Huawei in India: Ex-R&AW boss Sood

Former R&AW chief Vikram Sood says there are powerful strategic, technological, geopolitical and legal reasons to suggest it could be risky to permit Chinese telecom major Huawei, with its state-structured backing, to launch operations in India’s critical infrastructure. The Centre is yet to take a call on allocating radiowaves despite telecom operators applying for spectrum to start 5G trials. In his book “The Ultimate Goal: A Former R&AW Chief Deconstructs How Nations Construct Narratives”, Sood says “the Chinese government financed Huawei and had moral compunctions in helping intellectual property theft in the US”.
