His tweet created curiosity among the people and left them wondering what will be the topic which Prime Minister wanted to share before the Lok Sabha election 2019.
In his live speech, Prime Minister has announced that India has become the fourth country which is capable of destroying a low-orbit satellite through an anti-satellite weapon. PM Modi added that Mission Shakti was completed less than three minutes.
An anti-satellite missile destroyed a live satellite in 3 minutes, and with this achievement, India becomes the fourth country to achieve this milestone. Only the United States, Russia, and China are capable of destroying a satellite.
PM Modi also added that new technology will not be used against anyone; it is entirely for defense purpose only.
