At one time, fighter jet MiG-21 aircraft were considered to be the backbone of the Indian Air Force. Now it has only four squadrons left. They may have been taken care of and upgraded, but these aircraft are neither fit for war nor flight.
However, due to the MiG-21 aircraft constantly crashing, many pilots have lost their lives, now it is time to remove these aircraft as soon as possible. The Air Force has been using MiG-21 aircraft since 1960. The Air Force has been continuously saying that it has not made any agreement to keep these aircraft ready for war, no matter how old they are.
