The test was named ‘Mission Shakti’ which took only 3 minutes time and India has now entered the elite space power club along with Russia, China, and the US.

Mission Shakti is an important step towards securing India’s safety, economic growth and technological advancement.

“A-SAT missile will give new strength to India’s space programme. I assure the international community that our capability won’t be used against anyone but is purely India’s defence initiative for its security. We’re against arms raised in space. This test won’t breach any int’l law or treaties,” PM Modi added.
