Budget constraints mean that only 72400 Indian troops to get advanced imported assault rifles ; rest to get less advanced made in India rifles

Why doesn't the supposedly nationalistic BJP government allot more money for defence ?

Its not the fault of the BJP.... There are many leeches and parasites in the Indian economy who suck out all the money.. For example, farmers dont pay income tax or any other tax, then they get subsidy on seeds for sowing and fertilizers, then every time there is an election their personal loans and electricity bills are waived off. The government has to keep doing this charity owing to political pressure. So where will there be money for all this?

of course , the BJP is better than congress in this regard . i have seen many liberal backers of congress saying that we spend too much money on defence !! and that defence spending should be reduced !!

Ironically, the PM cum Def M who raised defense allocation, saying that the defense budget is not decided by Delhi but Islamabad was Wee Pee Singh

Its ironic that we can design Nuke Subs and MIRV ICBM's, but we cannot design a proper assault rifle.

Its high time the ishnapore rifle factory be sold to some private firm and get them to start working on Designed and Made in India assault rifles.

Re: Budget constraints mean that only 72400 Indian troops to get advanced imported assault rifles ; rest to get less advanced made in India rifles

the new guns will have barrel 7.62 mm in diameter , as opposed to the earlier INSAS rifles which had diameter of 5.56 mm .

the bullets of 5.56 mm diameter could only maim a person and not kill him . the european philosophy behind this was that then 3-4 more soldiers will be required to move the wounded comrade . but chinese and pakistanis and most importantly terrorists are inhuman and they don't bother about wounded comrades . so we are back to 7.62 calibers which kill the opposing soldier/terrorist like earlier rifles .
