Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh has said that a technologically advanced military is crucial to protect the interests of the nation. Inaugurating a two-day DRDO- Academia conclave in New Delhi on 25 May 2023, Rajnath Singh stressed that for a country like India, it becomes vital to have such a military as it faces a double threat on borders.
“Today we are one of the largest armed forces in the world, the bravery and valor of our military are praised all over the world. Countries across the world express their willingness to conduct joint exercises with our armed forces. In such a situation, it becomes imperative that we have a technologically advanced military to protect the interests of the country. For a country like India, it becomes very important because we are facing a double threat on our borders,” Raksha Mantri said.
