Know why Rajnath Singh performed Rafale's 'shastra puja'| Master Stroke

Updated 09 Oct 2019 09:57 PM

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said in France on Tuesday that the Rafale deal was possible due to the decisiveness of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Rajnath took off for the 30-minute sortie in Merignac soon after completing a Shastra Puja after the first of the 36 Rafale jets was handed over to him on the occasion of Dussehra on Tuesday.
The Shastra Puja (traditional weapon worship ceremony) was conducted by Rajnath upon the first Rafale jet before he flew on the sortie. Rajnath, who has been performing the Shastra Puja for the past several years in his personal capacity, inscribed the 'Om' symbol on the fuselage of the first Rafale jet with vermillion as part of the ceremony.
