PM’s address to the Nation
Posted On: 27 MAR 2019 2:11PM by PIB Delhi
The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the nation today.
In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister said “In the journey of every nation there are moments
that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is
today. India has successfully tested the Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Missile. Congratulations to
everyone on the success of Mission Shakti.
Mission Shakti was a highly complex one, conducted at extremely high speed with remarkable
precision. It shows the remarkable dexterity of India’s outstanding scientists and the success of
our space programme.
Mission Shakti is special for 2 reasons:
(1) India is only the 4th country to acquire such a specialised & modern capability.
(2) Entire effort is indigenous.
India stands tall as a space power! It will make India stronger, even more secure and will further
peace and harmony.”
