Nuke test was a success: Kakodkar

 
Addressing a joint press conference, India’s nuclear czars made a presentation to rebut doubts being raised at the success of India’s only test of thermonuclear device.
Both Kakodkar and Chidambaram said that the hydrogen bomb test was “successful” and had achieved “all the desired goals,” and described the controversy over the yield of the device as “unnecessary.”

The 1998 nuclear tests have given us the capability to build deterrence based on both fission and thermonuclear weapon systems from modest to all the way up to 200 kilotons, and the possibility of meeting all our security requirements,” said Kakodkar, who headed the BARC in 1998.

Chidambaram, who was the AEC chairman in 1998, described the test as “perfectly successful”.
