Lucknow, Aug 26: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh Friday asserted India is “no more a weak” country, and its reputation and credibility has increased rapidly at the global level.

He addressed a programme at the Lucknow University, where he said, “India is no more a weak India. Now India has become a powerful India. We have full faith in our soldiers, and we should be proud of our jawans.”
He added the country’s economy is growing at a fast rate.
“India’s reputation and credibility has increased rapidly at the global level,” the Union minister said.
During his visit, Singh will attend several programmes and interact with different sections of society.
