‘Rs 85000 crore allocated for 2022-23’
Earlier, at an event in Delhi, the Defense Minister said that a large part of our defense budget is kept for procurement from domestic vendors. 85000 crores allocated for 2022-23. A quarter of the Defense Research and Development budget was devoted to industries and research development. The way was paved for new defense technologies and innovations.
‘Indian Army has full confidence of self-defense today’
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said that the Indian Army has the ability to give a befitting reply to any force that looks at the country with an evil eye. Whenever our army was challenged by China, we answered them in their own language. He said that when India conducted its first nuclear test in Rajasthan in 1998 under the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the idea was not to use a weapon against a country, but to maintain a deterrent. The Indian Army today has full confidence in self-defense. Today in 2022 when India’s army joins with China, it does so equally.
