Yes usual lobby that never sees the bigger picture and want every single selective foreign bell and whistle....at whatever premium it takes.
I am happy govt has put negative import list and I believe it includes artillery system.
More pressure needs to be put on that in more complete fashion (i.e treat india-developed and not just produced as advantage in selection given RnD fruition and multiplier) to counter lobby antics....in every service branch.
Just imagine if instead of MMRCA and all time and effort put to that (and what it has amounted to), simple commitment and ramp up of Tejas and Mk2 was done back then 10+ years earlier....instead of it being relegated to some side project....and then ultimately needing later crushing squadron depletion and lack of resource, and govt kick up backside make them slowly see sense now.
Just imagine if ISRO was run like this from start....we would have next to zilch.
