This Congress govt. has done tremendous damage to Indian Armed Forces.......

We are mostly importing the defense requirement which means 'building the economy' of exporting countries. In spite of 'such a huge" DRDO network we have miserable failed in indigenous. development which suffered mainly due to "corruption" in imports.

Where is Pakistan?
It only means more money for UPA to pocket, not that the country is prepared militarily any better.

Encouraging the indigenous hi tech arm manufacturer shall be Modi's 1st priority after assuming office in 16th may.

Germany has population of 7 cr. and no one is around as potential enemy . but they spend more then India. Some people tack national security very seriously.
Ninth in purchases but first in purchase scandals.

It is not just about how many $$ we spend on military expenditure. It is about overall strategy and infrastructure. Acquiring horrendously expensive "mountain helicopters" but having no roads along the Chinese border for troop mobilization is a case in point.
And yet, we often hear that we are low on arms and supplies. Where is the money going? Or must I say, is the money going to the same congi vaults in swiss bank?
just imagine i we just collect the the sum of these 15 spenders we can remove the poverty & illiteracy from the world. Total waste of money
47 billion is only official figure, spending is actually substantially more than this. For eg in kashmir and NE, India spends huge amount of money supported by taxpayers of India which is not counted in the 47 billion dollars. Indian politicians also want to involve army in central India to combat maoists. With growth rates dipping to 5 percent, India might soon run out of money to run defense. Remember folks, defense spending is not productive spending.

wE SHOULD SPEND LESS MONEY IN WEAPONS.
So China spends more on military and its a threat to us in case if there is a war.The combined force of India & Japan too is not near to china..India should develop its military resources there was an article where India military lacks Ammunition and so if this situation continues India would become weak.Or an alternative is that all countries should sign a treaty of friendship ie whatever the situation is they will not go for a war

India should export weapons to the rest of countries. We have the hi tech industries.

But if we do that, how can some netas get the kickbacks?
