Rajnath Singh

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, on Sunday, said that “We want to manufacture BrahMos missiles not to invade any country but because no one dares to cast an evil look on India.

Speaking at an event after laying the foundation stones for the Defence Technologies and Test Centre and BrahMos Manufacturing Centre in Uttar Pradesh’s capital on Sunday, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that India manufactures BrahMos not to invade any country but so that no one dares to cast an evil look on India. Referring to the advanced missile that is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, Singh stated that “We want to manufacture BrahMos on Indian soil so that no country has the audacity to cast an evil eye on India.”

On Sunday, Rajnath Singh was in Lucknow to lay the foundation stone of the Defence Technologies and Test Centre and the BrahMos Manufacturing Centre. He was accompanied by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath. Singh, on the occasion, also did not hesitate to drag Pakistan into the scene. The Union Defence Minister said “There is a neighboring country. It got separated from India sometime back. I don’t know why its intentions vis-a-vis India are always bad. It committed acts of terrorism in Uri and Pulwama and then our Prime Minister took a decision. We went in and destroyed terrorist hideouts in that country, and when there was a need for airstrikes, we did that successfully. We gave the message that if somebody dares to cast an evil eye on us, then not just on this side of the border, we can go to the other side and hit them. This is India’s strength.”

Rajnath also praised the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and said that he was happy that Yogi provided the land to set up the project at the earliest. The BrahMos manufacturing center will be established in Lucknow on 200 acres by The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). As per the plan, the center will be ready by the next two to three years and is expected to begin production at a rate of 80-100 Brahmos-NG missiles a year.
