THE Modi government is making India flow into the American military fold at a break-neck speed. In 2016, India became a “Major Defense Partner” of the United States (US). Buying military equipment from the US is the high point of Modi’s foreign policy. He is aiming to make India a full-fledged US military ally and privatise national defence before the end of his term as prime minister. Today, US is India’s biggest arms supplier. The cumulative defence trade between the two countries is in the range of US $14 to $15 billion.
