Defence Minister's Tryst With Tejas

Defence Minister AK Antony today: "It is a historic day for us as far as country is concerned, aeronautics is concerned and for all of us. I congratulate all of them who started years back. there was a time when there was serious doubt about this programme. But all these doubts have been proved wrong today. You've seen the spectacular performance of LCA. Today I can assure you that at last LCA will be a reality. This is 2nd february 2010, I can tell you with confidence that by the end of this year, Dec 2010 the IOC of LCA is going to take place. End of 2012 final operational clearance will happen."

HAL was suppossed to fly HAL Light combat helicopter, instead of Tejas on Feb-2nd.
