New Delhi: Mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday wished him “happy World Theatre Day” after his address to the nation during which he announced that India had shot down a live satellite using anti-satellite missile technology.
Gandhi also congratulated the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO).
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability by shooting down a live satellite, describing it as a rare achievement that puts the country in an exclusive club of space super powers.
“In the journey of every nation there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today,” he said in an unprecedented broadcast to the nation on television, radio and social media.
His address came as campaigning intensifies ahead of Lok Sabha elections starting April 11.
He said the action was not directed against any country and the satellite was a pre-determined target orbiting at an altitude of 300 km.
