Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh State University at Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh yesterday. The Prime Minister also visited the exhibition models of the Aligarh node of the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Defence Industrial Corridor and Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh State University.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said, today, not only the country, but the whole world is witnessing India manufacturing defence equipment, from modern grenades and rifles to fighter aircraft, drones and warships. He said, India is shedding the image of a big defence importer of the world and acquiring a new identity of an important defence exporter of the world. The Prime Minister said, New industries are coming up to support the manufacture of defence-related products in the Aligarh Node of the Defence Corridor.

The Prime Minister said, the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government are working together for the development of the state. He lauded the Yogi government for working towards all-round development of the state. Mr Modi also pointed out that today Uttar Pradesh is emerging as an attractive destination for every small and big investor of the country and across the globe.

The Prime Minister said, the Central government is making constant efforts to give strength to the farmers with small landholdings.

Paying rich tribute to Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh, the Prime Minister said, he devoted every moment of his life for the independence of India. Mr Modi said, the government is paying respect and remembering the freedom fighters who have been forgotten in history and could not get their actual place and honour. The Prime Minister said, Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh also did a lot of work in the field of education.
