Singh represents Lucknow constituency in Parliament. This will be the 11th edition of Defexpo. Nine editions of this biennial show have been held in New Delhi, while the last two were shifted by the then Defence Ministers Manohar Parrikar and Nirmala Sitharaman to their home states of Goa and Tamil Nadu respectively in 2016 and 2018.
The new Defence Minister also wants to use the staging of Defexpo in Lucknow to promote the Defence Industrial Corridor in Uttar Pradesh.
