Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched 17 developments projects worth 538 crore rupees at Amethi in Uttar Pradesh. These projects include a factory to manufacture AK 203 rifles, the latest version in Kalashnikov series with Russian collaboration. Later addressing a rally there, the Prime Minister said, these rifles will help our security forces to tackle terrorists and naxals more effectively.
He said, the ordnance factory will also create employment opportunities for the youth. Attacking the opposition, the Prime Minister said, the previous government at the Centre overlooked the demand for bulletproof jackets for our jawans.
But it is the NDA government which supplied bulletproof jackets to our brave jawans. The Prime Minister also talked about the government’s efforts to help farmers to improve their lot. He said now, farmers get improved seeds, fertilizers, pesticides etc. whenever they want.
