While addressing the arms-industry partnership virtually, the Army Chief pitched for a self-reliant India to become the main player in the global economy. "Today self-reliance in defence has become a strategic necessity. It is imperative for us to invest in building long term indigenous capabilities for application across the entire spectrum of conflict. Considering the quick pace of defence modernisation being undertaken by our adversaries, we are lagging behind slightly.
