Arihant, Nuclear Ballistic Missile Submarine, completes first deterrence patrol, tells PM Modi

Arihant, India’s first nuclear ballistic missile submarine, has completed its first deterrence patrol, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared on Twitter on Monday.

“Dhanteras gets even more special! India’s pride, nuclear submarine INS Arihant successfully completed its first deterrence patrol! I congratulate all those involved, especially the crew of INS Arihant for this accomplishment, which will always be remembered in our history,” PM Modi tweeted

“In an era such as this, a credible nuclear deterrence is the need of the hour. The success of INS Arihant gives a fitting response to those who indulge in nuclear blackmail,” said Modi.


Since the last three decades, the 6,000-tonne INS Arihant was under development and a highly classified programme comes under the direct control of the Nuclear Command Authority headed by PM Modi.
