Bengaluru: Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) received a Request for Proposal (RFP) from the Indian Air Force to meet its requirement of Basic Trainers at the Aero India 2021 in Bengaluru on Thursday February 4 2021.
The RFP is for 70 HTT-40 Basic Trainer Aircraft with provision for 38 more aircraft. The documents were handed over by Deputy Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Sandeep Singh and DG (Acquisition), Ministry of Defence V L Kantha Rao to Chairman and Managing Director, HAL R Madhavan.
The certification will be given against the Program Compliance and Quality Review (PCQR). The production will take place at two manufacturing facilities of HAL in Bengaluru and Nashik. The RFP has come within six years from the first flight of HAL which is the shortest time-line in aircraft industry. The trainer will have more than 60 percent indigenous content and is supported by agencies such as Centre for Military Airworthiness and Certification (CEMILAC), Regional Director Aeronautical Quality Assurance (RDAQA), Aircraft and Systems Testing Establishment (ASTE)among others.
There is countrywide rage and anger against the Khalistanis operating from the US, Canada, England and other parts of the world, who are bent upon inciting violence and want to divide India. If the government of India fails to cancel the OCI status of known Khalistanis with immediate affect, it will be committing a grave blunder (Overseas Citizenship of India is a form of permanent residency available to people of Indian origin and their spouses which allows them to live and work in India indefinitely).
Government of India also will have to use its economic importance and strategic position in the post-Covid world and wage a diplomatic war against the forces challenging India’s sovereignty.
India should do all to expose and isolate leaders like Rahul Gandhi.and Arvind Kejrival, along with the Leli gang (Left-Liberal gang), vested interest groups that have flourished under the Congress ecosystem, the so-called international celebrities who have joined the chorus to defame India on the issue of farmers’ protest and also the pro-Khalistan leaders in positions of power in the western world.
One is left wondering how the violent protestors in large numbers from Punjab, posing as farmers, could cross Haryana, along with those from western UP and Rajasthan, and could reach Delhi unhindered on their tractors that were specially fitted with armoured frames welded to their chassis in the front, to knock out barricades. The fallout was the Republic Day violence and mayhem in Delhi.
Every peace-loving citizen wants to know what about the arrest and prosecution of those charged of sedition. What about tracking those who mobilised resources and men to storm the Red Fort and wage a war against the Delhi Police. What about sending a strong message to countries harbouring the Khalistanis who fund terror and brazenly challenge India’s sovereignty.
Bhopal: Lalit Shastri, Editor-in-Chief of Newsroom24x7 on Wednesday 3 February 2021 deactivated his twitter account protesting against twitter’s failure to block accounts or flag posts by a vested group trying to malign India’s image on the issue of farmers’ protest without bothering to stick to facts.
Even Newsroom24x7 – the popular news portal with a global following – has deactivated its Twitter handle.
