Rajnath Singh terms HAL as backbone of Indian defence

Rajnath Singh terms HAL as backbone of Indian defence

Bengaluru, Feb 27 (UNI) Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday hailed Defence major Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’s (HAL) contribution in the nation building by terming it as the backbone of the Indian Defence Forces.

Mr Singh was speaking at Kannada Naada Habba, a cultural event organised at HAL here.

"While there is every reason to be happy about its performance especially in the last five years, the Company should prepare itself to take up the challenges in the emerging market. HAL should see the competition as an opportunity," he said.

The Minister inaugurated the program in the presence of HAL officers, employees, Kannada luminaries and others.



The Defence Minister complemented HAL for celebrating the rich heritage and the language of Karnataka which he said has contributed immensely in enriching India’s diverse culture. The state is a beautiful mix of modernity and tradition with great history, he added.
