S 400 is not going to be enough for the whole country

Yup, everyone is fool and corrupt except those genius BJP leaders who still couldn't figure out how to win Delhi.

Can Delhi government which is a bigger Nagar Nigam even come remotely close to Central funds? It's not about money.

(I see you directly quoted figures and statement from one not so famous political analyst, he was right for UP, doesn't make his every word gospel.)

Dilli ki hawa ab badal rhi hai was amplified way too much in echo chambers only, whatever benefit Shaheen Bagh yielded BJP's own mistakes made sure that it is neutralized. I am not on ground and has limited access so I can be wrong but I don't think it will be close fight or thin margins, BJP will most probably lose it comprehensively.
Our Friends on Pee Dee Eff are jumping like monkeys :ROFLMAO:
a/c to waz the moderator "this proves all other russian and israeli SAM were trash"
a/c to free wind farter "it will be used to shoot down indian plane as pak plane are missile proof"
but i have observed green horns have developed this amazing habits of ignoring /making fun of indian advancements lately .may be reality is a bit too touchy for them now to have a serious/sane discussion

Those AIM120C7/C8 hmmm... May be we can finally start to integrate them with our Israeli radars. I will love to see Jags firing AIM120C7/C8 or that two pint of a fighter Tejas firing AIM120C7/C8. Since we already have few of them, later we can buy 'few more' of them. Balakot proved that to be a successful attacker, you need right missiles. Jags and Tejas armed with AIM120C7/C8 will be a nightmare for anything ChiPak can throw on IAF.
