PM Modi says success of indigenous nuclear submarine INS Arihant gives fitting response to those who indulge in nuclear blackmail

@narendramodi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that success of indigenous nuclear submarine INS Arihant gives a fitting response to those who indulge in nuclear blackmail. Receiving the crew at his official residence in New Delhi, Prime Minister said, a credible nuclear deterrence is the need of the hour. 


Mr Modi said, a strong India will be an important pillar for global peace and stability, especially in a world full of uncertainties and concerns. He said, India's nuclear programme must be seen with regard to the country’s efforts to further world peace and stability. 


Prime Minister said, India remains committed to the doctrine of Credible Minimum Deterrence and No First Use. INS Arihant has successfully completed its first deterrence patrol. This completes establishment of the country's nuclear triad.


Expressing happiness at the Navy's feat, President Ram Nath Kovind said, the successful mission of the submarine is a landmark moment in the nation's security preparedness. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, said INS Arihant places India in the league of a few countries that can design, construct and operate Strategic Strike Nuclear Submarines.


Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and BJP President Amit Shah also praised the achievement. Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore said it marks the completion of India's nuclear triad and ensures nation's safety and security.
