PM to inaugurate Defence Expo

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Thiruvidanthai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will formally inaugurate Defence Expo - a biennial exhibition of weapons and military hardware - here tomorrow though he will observe a day-long fast, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said today.

"I will fast. He (Modi) will be fasting. But it will not stop him from inaugurating the expo," Sitharaman told reporters.

Modi and other BJP leaders are slated to observe a day-long fast tomorrow to protest against the washout of the budget session of Parliament due to disruptions by the opposition.

The  four-day-long expo began here today with the participation of major global and domestic military firms. However, it will be formally inaugurated tomorrow.

A raft of defence deals including for setting up joint ventures were signed between private industries on the sidelines of the expo.

Delegations from over 40 countries including from the US, Russia, France and the UK are attending the expo.
