Bengaluru to be a Defence hub: CM

Bengaluru, March 17: Bengaluru would evolve as a major hub of Defence research and production meeting the defence needs of not only India but of its friendly nations too, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.

Participating in a function to inaugurate the Flight Control System(FCS) Complex of Defence Research and Development Organisation(DRDO) Bommai said, Bengaluru is home to over 180 R & D institutions of international level. The city has highly competent and skilled manpower.

Apart from a Defence Hub and Industrial hub, a Semiconductor Hub too would come up in Bengaluru, Bommai said and appealed to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh for all the support from the Union government and Ministry of Defence to develop the Defence Hub which could meet not only defence needs of India, but of its friendly nations too.

DRDO a pioneer in research

The nation is safe under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi and Defence minister Rajnath Singh. Major developments are happening in the world and the world is looking up to India’s guidance. It is because of our strength in the defence sector. The research and innovations of DRDO would make the country stronger, Bommai said.

FCS Complex is a miracle

Describing the Flight Control System Complex as a miracle as it has been established in an unbelievable time of just 45 days, Bommai said, the technology could be used in construction of various structures in the State as it would save cost and time, Bommai said and sought DRDO’s cooperation in realising his wish to develop Karnataka with the vision of ‘New Karnataka for New india’. Construction of a 6 storied Complex in just 45 days, which is usually the time taken for tendering process in the state, is nothing short of a miracle.

The FCS Complex is a reflection of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of Atma Nirbhar Bharat becoming a reality.

Appreciating Rajnath Singh as a man who walks the talk, Bommai said, “he will never compromise with anything related to the interests of India. Such a commitment is needed for a big country like India,” Bommai said.
