Delhi: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that India will have to retaliate if someone tries to “destabilise” the country. While talking about the induction of Rafale fighter jet and its significance, Singh told. “I want to specify that we are doing it for Army, Navy and Air Force. The motive behind enhancing the capability is self-defence and not for attacking anyone. But if someone tries to destabilise India then we will have to retaliate.” The Defence Minister called his tryst with Rafale as good, adding that Rafael’s induction will enhance the strength of the Indian Air Force (IAF). “I had a good experience of flying Rafale aircraft as I flew at supersonic speed. I can say that with the induction of Rafale, our Air Force’s strength will enhance as Rafale can cover air to air, air to surface,” Singh added. Earlier in the day, Rajnath held a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and termed it as ‘fruitful.’
