Modi wants India's military to become number 1. Meanwhile :

So will those hungry Indians eat weapons ?

This idiot doesn't know it is not the machine it is man behind the machine matters the most. Talban vs usa is prime example.
The Western governments were fighting the Taliban half-heartedly. It is unfortunate that the common Western and allied soldier was killed or injured. A real invasion would look like the one against Iraq in 2003, Libya in 2011 and the continuing ten-year-old war against Syria since 2011 with tens of thousands of Western-government trained, financed and politically supported transnational criminals.

The Taliban's embassy in Qatar has existed since 2013 and that country has a big American military base yet while America was claiming to kill Taliban in Afghanistan it did not attempt to assassinate the Taliban's embassy people in Qatar. Nor did MI6 or Mossad.

The Taliban is just a bunch of criminals who exist with the permission of Western governments.

Aim to make India world’s biggest military power: PM Modi
TNN / Oct 16, 2021, 01:35 IST

NEW DELHI: The seven defence public units carved out of the mammoth Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) will become a strong base for India's military strength in the years ahead, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday, urging the new entities to make research and innovation an integral part of their work culture.

Under the “Atmanirbhar Bharat” campaign, the goal is to make India “the world’s biggest military power on its own” and develop a modern defence industrial base, said the PM, in a video address at an event to dedicate the seven new defence companies to the nation on the occasion of Vijayadashami. Defence minister Rajnath Singh, national security adviser Ajit Doval and the military brass, among others, attended the event.

“Today, there is more transparency, trust and a technology-driven approach in the country's defence sector than ever before. For the first time after Independence, so many major reforms are taking place in our defence sector and instead of stagnant policies, a single-window system has been arranged,” the PM said, noting that the OFB reform was pending for the last 15-20 years.

The OFB was dissolved on October 1, with its 41 factories, assets, employees and management being transferred to the seven new 100% government-owned companies in accordance with the Cabinet decision to corporatise the entity, as was reported by TOI.


The restructuring is designed to make the seven PSUs functionally autonomous, more productive and cost-efficient as the main suppliers of arms, ammunition and clothing to the 15-lakh strong armed forces.
“You (the seven companies) not only have to match the world’s biggest companies, but also take the lead in future technology… become global brands. Competitive costs are our strength, quality and reliability should also become our identity,” said Modi.

The new companies, with an order book of over Rs 65,000 crore, will also play an important role in import substitution. “I will also tell start-ups that they should also be part of this new beginning that the country has started today through these seven companies,” the PM said.

Citing the various reforms undertaken by the government, including the two defence industrial corridors set up in UP and Tamil Nadu, the PM said various Indian companies were now also exploring possibilities in the defence production arena.

“The private sector and the government, together, are moving ahead in the mission to ensure defence of the nation. This is also creating new opportunities for the youth in the country, and opening up new possibilities for many MSMEs in the form of supply chains. As a result of the policy changes in the last five years, our defence exports have increased by more than 325%,” he added.

The world had seen the strength of India's ordnance factories at the time of World War-I and II. “After Independence, we needed to upgrade these factories, adopt new-age technology. But it was not given much attention. Over time, India became dependent on foreign countries for its strategic and defence needs. These new seven defence companies will play a big role in bringing change in this situation,” the PM said.

:rofl:

Is this a joke? He means biggest buyer of foreign military arms, is it?

India maybe can turn into world biggest military power but not in my life time and I can say, I am still very young. Many good decades ahead of me! :enjoy:

Unfortunately, Modi killed the Indian economy with strict covid lockdowns. So funding defense is going to be a tough ask for the next decade or two.
Letting more Indian died by covid-19 to protect economy is worth while and human life is not important.

Do you mean that?

And no mention of this from our bearded RSS "neta",

Govt Expresses ‘Shock’ Over India’s 101 Rank In Global Hunger Index, Calls Methodology ‘Unscientific’

Indian rank is behind Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. Dead last in the subcontinent.

And this too - Indian debt-to-GDP Ratio has now exceeded 90%, COVID is the excuse being given. Do you guys now believe me that Modi truly ruined India?

COVID-19 impact: India's debt to GDP ratio rises from 74% to 90%, says IMF

Yes, you are correct but it is important that we understand that they won the war by outlasting them, not by winning battles against them.
Everyone has their own strategy. Taliban killed then with a 1000 cuts and in the end they ran in the dark of the night

Unfortunately or fortunately all this rhetoric and counter rhetoric on PDF falls on a very few ears.

Might as well be wanking one off alone in the midst of the night.

Do think the Chinese will wait until Modi achieves his objective? Nothing wrong with having such National goals but boasting about them with limited ability to achieve them gets attention and leads to unintended consequences. The Indians really know how to bring it to themselves. They are already getting a lot of attention from China and Pakistan and they will getting much more.

So a leader should not express his vision to his people so that society works for to achieve it ? And your reasoning for that is attention of China and Pakistan ... hilarious 😂

I don’t think you comprehend what that “attention” or the crux of my message means. I think like most Indians like you lack the ability to think deep.
