PM Modi facts about INS Vikrant-
Prime Minister Modi said, in the past, security concerns in the Indo-Pacific region and the Indian Ocean have been ignored for a long time. But, today this area is a major defense priority of the country for us. That’s why we are working in every direction, from increasing the budget for the Navy to increasing its capability. PM Modi said, drop by drop of water becomes like a vast ocean. Similarly, if every citizen of India starts living the mantra of ‘Vocal for Local’, then it will not take much time for the country to become self-reliant.

Speaking on the induction of INS Vikrant into the Navy, the Prime Minister said, the Indian Navy has decided to open all its branches to women. The restrictions that were there are now being removed. Just as there are no boundaries for the capable waves, so there will be no boundaries or restrictions for the daughters of India.

The Prime Minister said, “History is witness to how strict restrictions were imposed on Indian ships and merchants by enacting a law in the British Parliament. He decided to break the back of India’s maritime power. But, Chhatrapati Veer Shivaji Maharaj built such a navy on the strength of sea power, which kept the enemies sleeping. When the British came to India, they were in awe of the power of Indian ships and the trade through them.

PM Modi said, till now the identity of slavery remained on the flag of Indian Navy. But from today onwards, inspired by Chhatrapati Shivaji, the new Navy flag will fly in the sea and in the sky. Today on the historic date of September 2, 2022, another history-changing act has happened. Today India has taken off a trace of slavery, a burden of slavery. Indian Navy has got a new flag from today.

When Vikrant descends to protect our maritime zone, many women soldiers of the Navy will also be stationed there. With the immense power of the ocean, the immense female power, it is becoming the lofty identity of the new India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, Vikrant is huge, Virat is, Vihangam is. Vikrant is special, Vikrant is also special. It is a testimony to the hard work, talent, influence and commitment of 21st century India. He said, Vikrant is a unique reflection of India becoming self-reliant. Today, India has joined those countries in the world, which manufacture such a huge aircraft carrier with indigenous technology.

He said, today INS Vikrant has filled the country with a new confidence, has created a new confidence in the country. The PM said, every part of INS Vikrant has its own merit, a strength, a development journey of its own. It is a symbol of indigenous potential, indigenous resources and indigenous skills. The steel installed in its airbase is also indigenous.

Importance of flag
The current flag of the Indian Navy has St George’s Cross with the tricolor in the upper left corner. The Indian Navy came into existence only during the British period. On October 2, 1934, the naval service was renamed the Royal Indian Navy. With India becoming a republic on January 26, 1950, the Royal was decommissioned and renamed the Indian Navy. However, the colonial flag of Britain was not removed. Now PM Modi has unveiled the new flag of Indian Navy.
