According to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India is no longer recognised as a defence importer, and the country is rapidly advancing toward becoming a significant defence supplier. After touring the Aligarh node of the UP Defence Industrial Corridor’s showcase models, the prime minister made the remarks. “India is no longer viewed as a defence importer; it is rapidly heading toward being a big defence exporter,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Aligarh.
He also complimented the administration led by Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath. Today, throughout the country and around the world, Uttar Pradesh attracts every little and major investment. This happens when the right developmental environment is supplied. The foundation stone for Raja-Mahendra Pratap Singh State University was laid by Premier Narendra Modi in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh.

The University would be built on 92 acres in Aligarh’s Kol tehsil’s villages of Lodha and Musepur Kareem Jarouli. According to the official communiqué, it would offer affiliation to 395 institutions in the Aligarh Division. On February 21, 2018, the Prime Minister announced a Defense Industrial Corridor in Uttar Pradesh while speaking at the Uttar Pradesh Investors Summit in Lucknow.
The Defense Industrial Corridor would have six nodes: Agra, Chitrakoot, Aligarh, Lucknow, Jhansi, and Kanpur. The land allocation procedure at the Aligarh node has been finished, and land has been awarded to 19 companies that would spend Rs 1245 crore on the node. The Uttar Pradesh Military-Industrial Corridor will aid in making the country self-sufficient in defence production and promote “Make in India.”
