Modis programmes were all aimed at development of both the state and the nation, the general said.
General Singha was speaking at the three-day Know Your Army exhibition organised by the Golden Katar Division of the Army, which Modi inaugurated.
General Singha also sought land from Modi for housing schemes for ex-servicemen. In his address, Modi urged industrial houses to invest in research and development in arms manufacturing to make the country self-dependent in the field.
He also appealed to young engineers to take interest in research and production of arms. Modi said the state was considering launching a Naval NCC training programme in all schools to enthuse students to join the Indian Navy.
