India shoots down satellite, announces Modi

PM Narendra Modi says India shoots down low orbit satellite and becomes a major space power. Mission Shakti is a big win for India.

“India has entered its name as an elite space power. An anti-satellite weapon A-SAT, successfully targeted a live satellite on a low earth orbit.

‘Mission Shakti’ operation was a difficult target to achieve which was completed successfully within three minutes of launch. Today, we have enough satellites that are contributing in various segments such as agriculture, disaster management, communication, weather, navigation etc,” the PM said.
