New Delhi/Bengaluru: The Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu paid his maiden visit to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) facilities accompanied by Thaawarchand Gehlot, Governor of Karnataka on Friday. “I am assured of our nation’s security and safety after seeing this impressive infrastructure in aerospace and defence,” he said in his address to senior officers of HAL and ADA.

I am proud of the role the company has played for the past 80 years ever since its inception. I am happy that India’s home-grown fighter LCA Tejas will be produced in large numbers and the government has taken initiatives to galvanize the Indian Defence Industry,” he added.
