Inaugurating the Defence Expo 2018 (DefExpo 2018) at East Coast Road near Chennai, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that in less than four years, his government had issued 794 more defence export permissions for a "total value of over $1.3 billion" compared to the 118 defence export permissions granted as on May 2014 for a total value of $577 million. Modi also said that his "bold action" in meeting India's critical defence and military requirements were contrary to the Congress-led UPA government's "laziness, incompetence or perhaps some hidden motives" that damaged the country's defence and security.
