FICCI applauds the success of "Mission Shakti"

Mar 27, 2019

It has enhanced our strategic defence capability: Sandip Somany, President, FICCI


NEW DELHI, 27 March 2019: FICCI applauds the success of "Mission Shakti" which demonstrated India�s capabilities to shoot a satellite in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) based on state-of-the-art capabilities which were indigenously developed.

This success speaks laurels for our scientific community which have done the nation proud and enhanced our strategic defence capability, said Mr Sandip Somany, President, FICCI.

He added that the emergence of India as a major defence and space power while keeping in place its commitments to non-proliferation of weapons in space and not against any nation, speaks volumes of its stature as a responsible world power in the comity of nations.

India is only the 4th country to acquire this capability besides Russia, China and the US, which is also a testimony of the nation�s space power.
