New Delhi: Defence minister Rajnath Singh has said that India has never even acquired even an inch of land by force, but our armed forces have the capability to give a befitting reply to those who try to cast their evil eye on India,” Singh said.
The defence minister’s comments come amid tensions with Pakistan over ceasefire violations meant to assist infiltrators.
Singh said the Indian Navy has ensured that attacks like 26/11 are not repeated by maintaining a strong vigil.
Armed forces capable of giving a befitting reply: Singh, who was addressing the media at the Naval Commanders conference in New Delhi, said that India has never been offensive but the armed forces are capable of giving a befitting reply.
Singh said the Navy is moving towards indigenization and the number of Indian equipment in our ships is increasing. The emphasis of the three forces is to reduce imports.
