Revolutionary steps taken to encourage Pvt sector participation in the Defence sector:Rajnath Singh

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said that  some revolutionary steps have been taken to encourage private sector participation in the defence sector and urged the industries to come forward to take due advantage.

The Defence Minister said this while presiding over the second edition of the Armed Forces Flag Day CSR Conclave which was organised as a webinar in New Delhi. Mr Singh  said the government has recognized the role and importance of private sector in the development of the country. He said, since 2014, when the NDA came into power, the government has encouraged the private sector to grow. Mr Singh said the Defence sector which was out of bound for the private sector, is now open to welcome the Indian private sector also.

He said that  in the process of fighting  to safeguard the sovereignty of the country our forces even lay down their lives, or are rendered disabled. He said, hence the rehabilitation and welfare of our Ex Servicemen, the next of kin of our martyrs and our disabled soldiers is the responsibility of all citizens. Mr Rajnath Singh said, the Flag Day provides us an opportunity to fulfill this responsibility by contributing to the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund.
