Narendra Modi

New Delhi  Bharat has attained anti-satellite capability, becoming the fourth such country after the US, China and Russia. The mission was completed within 3 minutes when a pre-determined target satellite some 300 km away in the sky was destroyed using a complicated space manoeuvre.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced it today in a nationally televised speech.

Calling it “Mission Shakti”, the Prime Minister said it did not violate any international law.

“This is a proud moment for the country. Our scientists have made this happen.”
