Indian prime minister standing against a failed fighter jet project Teja
The plan will bolster Indian navy with seven frigates and six nuclear submarines. This goes in line with the new but aggressive Indian prime minister who wants to have a strong military for two-front war with Pakistan and China.

Aid is just a sticking plaster.’ Andrew Rosindell, Tory MP for Romford, said: ‘It is clear that India is becoming a wealthy country if it is able to spend such a colossal amount on its military.'
