India plans to add at least 10 Nuclear reactors to generate over 7,000 MW of electricity, which exceeds the current capacity of operating reactors. India also celebrated the first nuclear test, Pokharan I, conducted 43 years ago on 18 May, 1974. We are surrounded by different and aggressive neighbors who have tons of nuclear weapons stockpiles. India is also rethinking the “no first use policy”. So will we restart our nuclear weapons programme as both a defensive and offensive. It feels like it and that would be great!
