On a query relating to use of ISIS flags by terrorists in the Valley, Mr Jaitley described them as isolated incidents. He said country is free from the menace of ISIS by and large.

The Minister also said that government wants India to become a global power in defence manufacturing sector. He said, private players are being encouraged to come forward. He said, his Ministry will continue to strengthen country’s ordnance factories and defence PSUs.
