The acceptance of projects in the defense industry totaling more than Rs. 70,500 crore was lauded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a "boost to self-reliance" and a "reaffirmation of faith in Indian talent" on Friday.
As part of a massive procurement plan, India on Thursday approved the capital purchase of a variety of locally developed military equipment, including the indigenous BrahMos missiles, marine diesel engines, artillery gun systems, electronic warfare suits, and utility helicopters, for a price of Rs 70,584 crore.
All of the platforms and weapon systems are bought domestically.
"A boost to self-reliance in defense, also reaffirming our faith in Indian talent," Modi tweeted in response to Rajnath Singh's tweet, which claimed that ongoing efforts are being made to ensure self-reliance in the defense sector and that proposals totaling more than Rs 70,500 crore have been approved.
The prime minister invited people to attend the Matua Maha Mela 2023, which will take place in West Bengal's Shreedham Thakurnagar from March 19 to 25.
A significant occasion that highlights the lively culture of the Matua people is the Matua Maha Mela 2023. I would recommend that more people go to the Mela," he stated.
Humanity will always be grateful to Shri Shri Harichand Thakur Ji for illuminating the way of compassion and service, said Modi.
