For the first time, India's indigenous Light Combat Aircraft performed stunts at the air show, amid loud cheers from the audience.
Speaking at an event, IAF chief Arup Raha said that Indian armed forces are prepared to give a befitting reply to sub-conventional threats and any other challenge facing the country.
His remarks come in the backdrop of frequent ceasefire violations by Pakistan and terror attacks in Kashmir, especially in wake of the cross-LoC surgical strike undertaken by the Army on September 29.
