PM Narendra Modi might soon inaugurate Russian AK-47/203 rifle manufacturing factory in Uttar Pradesh


Make in India is taking off. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to inaugurate a new factory in Korwa, near Amethi, in Uttar Pradesh, on February 28 for the manufacture of Russian designed AK-47/203 rifles in India.
