India enters Nuclear Triad with INS Arihant completing deterrence patrol: ‘Fitting response to nuclear blackmailers’ says PM Modi!

Today as a Diwali gift to the country, the defence force of our country has made the Nation proud by making India a Nuclear Triad nation. By securing the nation with nuclear power in air, water and ground, the defence system of our country has reached new heights. The INS Arihant returned from its first deterrence patrol, thereby completing the establishment of the country’s survivable nuclear triad:

The Prime Minister who hailed the achievement of the INS and called it a befitting reply to nuclear blackmailers. Narendra Modi who received the crew of Strategic Strike Nuclear Submarine (SSBN) INS Arihant, congratulated them on their achievement.

Noting that the indigenous development of the SSBN and its operationalisation attest to the country’s technological prowess and the synergy and coordination among all concerned, the Prime Minister thanked them for their dedication and commitment in realising this pioneering accomplishment enhancing immensely the country’s security. The Prime Minister stated that the people of India aspire for a ‘Shaktimaan Bharat’ (Strong India) and building a New India. They have strived tirelessly to overcome all challenges in this path. He stressed that a strong India will fulfill the hopes and aspirations of over a billion Indians and will also be an important pillar for global peace and stability, especially in a world full of uncertainties and concerns.

In his speech he said, Today is historic because it marks the completing of the successful establishment of the nuclear triad. India’s nuclear triad will be an important pillar of global peace and stability. India is a land of peace. Values of togetherness are enshrined in our culture. Peace is our strength, not our weakness.  Our nuclear programme must be seen with regard to India’s efforts to further world peace and stability.

The success of INS Arihant enhances India’s security needs. It is a major achievement for our entire nation. True to its name, INS Arihant will protect the 130 crore Indians from external threats and contribute to the atmosphere of peace in the region.

Quoting the Sanskrit mantra, PM Modi said

We are guided by this Mantra:

राष्ट्र रक्षा समं पुण्यं,
राष्ट्र रक्षा समं व्रतम्,
राष्ट्र रक्षा समं यज्ञो,
दृष्टो नैव च नैव च।।

We will do everything for our beloved nation and for the wellbeing of 130 crore Indians.

Vande Mataram!
