Stressing on the need to develop indigenous technology, Dr G Satheesh Reddy, scientific advisor to defence minister Manohar Parrikar, said that India needs to be the top exporter of arms and ammunitions in the world and not the top importer.

“India has done well in technological advancements and yet we remain the largest importer of defence equipment. Even Narendra Modi had said that he wishes to be the Prime Minister of a country that is not the top importer of defence equipment but the top exporter,” he said.
