Addressing the public meeting, S N Pathak informed that Ordnance Factories have played a key role in the victory of India Army, Navy and Air Force in different wars by feeding ammunition, weapons and other resources to armed forces.

Now, the Government of India is trying to shut down and restrain the strength of Ordnance Factories under an alleged conspiracy to provide an undue advantage to corporate houses.
