Inauguration of Arms Factory in Kanpur : Pakistan Disturbed

Touted as the ‘largest defence factory in South Asia’

Islamabad, Pakistan – An arms factory has been established in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, claimed to be the largest defence factory in South Asia. The factory, spanning 500 acres, aims to fulfil India’s defence needs as well as global demands. Adani Defence and Aerospace has invested Rs 3,000 crore in this facility. The inauguration of the project, which will also produce missiles, was conducted by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on 26th February. The factory has started manufacturing small calibre bullets. According to Adani Group estimates, this currently meets only 25% of India’s needs, a figure expected to increase over time. Pakistani experts are reportedly shocked by this development.

Pakistani journalist Qamar Cheema stated that since the downing of an Indian aircraft by Pakistan, India has been intensifying its defence capabilities. India now aims to domestically produce drones and is preparing for warfare on two fronts, focusing on self-reliance not only for domestic use but also for exports.
